    This review is from: Freekeh Foods Freekeh Rosemary Sage , 8-Ounce (Grocery)
    This brand is the best price that I could find and still have high quality. The texture is somewhat different than your conventional tabouleh. I like it better – sprouted, young green wheat berries are harvested – which is why this is so high in antioxidants. It has a very nice rosemary sage seasoning included – but it is not heavily seasoned. I cook Freekeh with vegetables, beans – before serving I add raw, organic EVO olive oil, some minced garlic, scallions, a little bit of organic tamari soy sauce – easy, very quick meal if you want to eat healthy but don’t have a lot of time. If you soak it overnight, it cooks in about 8 minutes at medium temperature. Freekeh is a very ancient strain of wheat. BTW, I am SO GLAD that I am not Celiac Sprue and don’t have gluten sensitivities. So many people I know cannot eat gluten – if you don’t have gluten allergies – you will enjoy this product.

    Freekeh Foods offers different type of tasting Freekeh unlike others which are sold only in original taste but Freekeh Food Freekeh is not in organic form, it is only sold in conventional but New Village is sold in organic form. Freekeh is a delicious food but just like wheat comes with gluten and certainly no superfood. Freekeh is the name used for any wheat, usually durum, that’s harvested when still green, then fire-threshed to give it a smoky intensity and pliant pop.

    Whole grain foods may not contain supplemental micronutrients, as refined grains often do. If you eat large amounts of unprocessed whole grains, it’s wise to increase food items with more folic acid nutrients. Bulgur is precooked cracked wheat. Because it cooks very quickly, quinoa with 222 calories per cup of cooked grain, has nearly twice the calories of bulgur, which has 112 calories per cooked cup. Cup for cup, quinoa has more of nearly every macro/micro nutrients except dietary fiber. But if on a healthy diet of legumes, seeds, nuts, fruits and vegetables then fiber is the last thing on anyone’s menu since after all chia tops it all when it comes to fiber. However, if you eat 2 cups of bulgur, you’ll take in approximately the same amount of calories and nutrients as in 1 cup of quinoa, plus 12 grams of dietary fiber, nearly half of the average daily target intake. Quinoa has 5 grams of dietary fiber per 1-cup serving. Bulgur, with its greater volume per calorie, may promote satiety more effectively than quinoa.

    Freekeh cooks in 15 minutes so I do not do what others do, I do a lot of unconventional cooking. I make dishes with Freekeh in the same manner that I cook quinoa. I place Freekeh or quinoa or both, some frozen peas in a pot, add water and tomato paste, carrots, corn and turn up the heat. In the end I add spinach. Stewing tomatoes for a half hour increases the cancer fighting lycopene content by 35 percent. Cooking also unlocks another nutrient, beta-carotene, in corn and carrots since heat breaks down the fibrous cell walls, releasing more of these antioxidants. The same goes for spinach but then need to get vitamin C from something else since that is the first vitamin which is depleted with heat. I sauté lots of onion separately then in ten minutes I add paprika, cumin, dill weed, gram marsala, crushed red pepper, turmeric, many other spices and lots of crushed Christopher Ranch garlic 2 x 2 Pound Fresh Garlic USA California Heirloom Monviso Gilroy Finest (4 Pounds Total) mix it well and add to the pot of Freekeh, mix and let it sit without heat for five minutes. Delicious, delicious, delicious. Sometimes I even add delicious organic red lentils which cook in few minutes as well, anything that cooks in 15 minutes. Left overs are even more delicious the next day.

    Freekeh is certainly priced up there with quinoa although I can purchase it from huge Middle Eastern stores all the time but not in organic form. only conventional form imported from Middle East. With all that said, bulgur will cause bloating and it has gluten where quinoa does not. Although bulgur has more fiber, potassium, calcium than quinoa, bulgur’s protein is incomplete where quinoa’s protein is complete. No wonder quinoa is the beef for vegans since vegans can get all other nutrients from other foods but not protein since it is in animal source.

    I am always looking for something healthy to eat and not gain weight. This fit the bill, very filling and a little goes a long way. I used it in soup and just as a side, my husband enjoyed it as well.
