Last week we enjoyed freekeh for the first time in a salad with chickpeas, celery and fresh herbs. Freekeh a delicious cereal made from green wheat that has been roasted. It is very nutritious and is becoming quite popular lately, although it has around for centuries.

Freekeh, Chickpea and Herb Salad

We found this delicious recipe, made by cookbook author Martha Rose Shulman at New York Times Cooking. Freekeh is easy to cook and this recipe comes together quickly. We hope you enjoy the salad as much as we did.
