- 2 cups freekeh (a kind of wheat berry), rinsed
- Coarse salt
- 4 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
In a large pot, bring freekeh and 10 cups well-salted water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until grains are tender but still chewy, about 45 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in garlic. Let cool slightly. Pour freekeh and cooking liquid onto a rimmed baking sheet to cool.
