Freekeh is a delicious grain that has so much nutritional valve that it is overtaking quinoa. It has protein, magnesium, B vitamins, fiber, minerals, iron antitoxins and much more. I think it tastes better too. Has a nutty flavor and goes great in any recipe that calls for a grain, like rice, quinoa, barley etc... it is a great vegan dish or you can add an animal protein if you want
