Frik, Farik, Freekeh, Freeken, call it what you will but I love it!
Has anyone else given it a try?
I have avoided potatoes, rice, pasta etc for 5 years now and putting carbs on my plate that I enjoy eating can be a challenge, I like sweet potatoes and was really pleased to find Ebly and the supermarket versions in France because I liked the taste and texture but the Algerian/north African staple Freekeh (blé verte cassé) has taken this to a whole new level.
And seemingly its very good for you as well although I do hope it doesn't become hyped up as the next superfood like Quinoa.
So try it but keep it to yourself!
At the Arab market they only had Frik concassé and not cassé, same roasted taste but smaller grained like Boulgar, I found the proper cracked version very cheap from a UK internet wholefood Platform.
