Freekeh is dried green wheat, harvested while the grains are still soft, then sun-dried. It is very common in the Middle East and North Africa, and is used in the same way as bulgur, couscous or pearled spelt. Freekeh has a very high fibre content.

Freekeh can be substituted for other grains. If you are trying to get more fibre in your diet it is a good substitute for rice. As it has a strong flavour it is great in pilafs and salads.
