WHOLE GRAIN FREEKEH
WHOLE GRAIN FREEKEH From $6.00

Popular with ancient Egyptians, Greenwheat Freekah has been rediscovered as one of the newest superfoods and the ‘it’ food in modern restaurants! The grains of “green” wheat are picked while still soft and fresh, then roasted. This unique process seals in the delicious taste of the young wheat along with its pristine nutritional value. You’ll enjoy a nutty taste with a subtle smoky flavour and a tender texture. 

Freekeh can be used in place of many other grains for an increased protein kick.
