If I had thought of it, I wouldn't have been able to stop myself from posting that.

It is supposed to have some tooth left so probably not for someone who doesn't like their grains to have some tooth left. I was looking for something that would cook in the same amount of time as basmati rice. I am going to test drive it in place of wheatberries in a side salad on Wednesday. I had read about it, but had never seen it in the store. I would like to try bamboo rice and jade rice, but they are both products of China...so I don't want to get addicted to them.

I thought it was okay, probably not something I'd want to eat all the time. It's got kind of a nutty flavor. I saved several recipes I want to try on my tablet, as well as the ones we have tried, which is charging right now so later I'll look on there and post where I found them. I think I posted on DC about us trying it. Will look after I post this and see if I can find the link(s).

Here's one. I really did like this soup.
Dinner, Monday 13th April.

and here's the other. I liked this too.
Dinner Saturday Jan 31?
Thanks.

recipe

ISO Freekah recipes I am sooooo tired of basmati rice, quinoa, and couscous sides for the recipes I am test driving. I picked up some Freekah the other day because it cooks in 20 minutes. I haven't tested it, yet. Maybe I will to go with the quail breasts...anyone have advice on how to prepare it--is it better if you rinse it/soak it/toast it? 3 stars 1 reviews
