Triple-Herb Freekeh

Yield: 4 servings



  • 1 cup Freekah
  • ½ cup finely diced red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh basil
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 medium lemon (2 Tbsp)
  • Salt and pepper to taste



  1. Add 8 cups water and the freekeh to a medium saucepan and boil until tender, about 20 minutes. Strain.
  2. Meanwhile, soak the onions in ice water in a small bowl for 10 minutes. Strain well.
  3. Whisk together the onions, basil, dill, parsley, oil, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add the cooked freekah and toss to coat.
