10 Healthy Recipes You Can Make with Freekeh – Almost Getting it TogetherAlmost Getting it Together
Freekeh, the whole grain of the week.
Doesn’t it seem like there is a new cool kid on the whole grain block every other week? First quinoa, then bulgar had a moment, I tried to make sorghum cool and now, freekeh is popping up on menus. In one cup of cooked freekeh there are 36 grams of carbs, 0.4 grams of fat, 8.2 grams of fiber and 5.6 grams of protein, all for 205 calories.
Since freekeh hasn’t quite hit the spotlight yet, I wanted to feature recipes where you can sub out the whole grain for freekeh. I’ve outlined which grain for which you can substitute freekeh.
