Cooking and Storing Freekeh

Cook a large batch and enjoy it through the week -- it reheats well and is very versatile.

Whole freekeh takes some time to cook, but it keeps well and reheats beautifully. So when you cook freekeh, make a large batch. Let it cool completely, and refrigerate it in an airtight container for up to five days. Use it to bulk up lighter dishes. Try:

  • Tossing a handful into sauteed greens, and stirring until heated through.
  • Stirring some into an omelet as it sets for a hearty breakfast.
