I bought 4 oz of freekeh and tried it tonight. It was around 3/4 cup, and I used almost 2 cups water, salt, and a touch of olive oil. Simmered on low and it did take forever (an hour) but the end result was better than expected. The aroma from the grain is nutty, deep, rich, almost with a grilled food smell. The texture was chewy but not hard, it just feels like you're eating something substantial. The taste is nutty and deep. It's quite filling. I had less than 1/2 cup, with stewed chicken livers (lots of celery, 1 liver on my plate) and 5 hours later, I'm still full. I'll buy this again, definitely for savoury meals and for an add-in to oatmeal.
Did not like the grain. Had it before from my healthfood store, and their freekeh was cracked tasted better also. Had to cook it for more than half an hour, instead of theirs 20 minutes. Still very chewy. Found it cheaper in Costco as well. Will not order it again from this site.
