Freekah is fast becoming the new superfood. It’s a baby green wheat which has been roasted which gives it a slightly smoky flavour and it’s much higher in protein and fibre than quinoa and has a much better texture and flavour. It can be added to stir fries and salads. If you google its health benefits they are endless. You can use it as you would quinoa and I buy it ready cooked from the supermarket in a bag made by Merchant Gourmet(or you can cook it from scratch) This healthy salad recipe is middle eastern in its style of flavours with cinnamon and smoked paprika. It’s perfect with other salads, roasts or humus and bread. It’s also a perfect lunch with a dollop of garlicky yogurt.
If you like Waldorf salad, my Waldorf salad tartines is an old classic recipe that I’ve updated and paired with Parmesan then placed on scorched sourdough.I love salad on toast because I love the combo of textures and flavours which make it a sweet crunchy creamy savoury fab lunch, starter or light dinner.
