Use Cracked Freekah to a nutty crunchy texture that’s excellent in burgers, stuffing, soups, making parfaits layering cooked Freekeh, yogurt, pears, apples, cranberries, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds for a seasonal dish that can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert, or even a snack!

From the Eyes of a Parent:
Freekehlicious’ Cracked Freekeh is a healthy grain alternative for my family. I love it because it’s so versatile and easy to cook. I can use it anytime of day. Its perfect as a replacemetnt for oatmeal in the morning, or as an alternative to rice in a quick wrap for lunch for my family. The best part is, once it’s cooked, it stays good in the fridge for 8 days! Cracked Freekeh is also high in protein and knowing I can use an ingredient that will provide my family with the energy they need to get them through the day is a relief.
