Freekeh Grain - Breakfast Idea

Hi BodyRockers, I am always looking for ideas. I recently discovered the grain freekeh. I noticed it popping up in the bulk bins with a big “Try me I’m new!” sign, so of course I had to. At the risk of sounding like a total tool, I have to say: it was love at first bite. If you’re not familiar with freekeh yet, I’m sure you will be soon. I have a feeling that it will be the new black (or maybe I should say, the new quinoa). It’s got a texture similar to brown rice and a somewhat nutty flavor. It’s super high in fiber and protein and low in calories and everything else that you want a food to be low in. I’ve only had it in pure grain form, but apparently it’s also made into flour, burgers, crackers and all kinds of good things. Yes, I’m in love. I’ve been thinking about cooking freekeh for breakfast for a few days now, and finally cooked some up last night for my breakfast today. It took a little longer than oatmeal does, but the end result is totally worth the wait! . Ingredients: 1/3 c greenwheat freekeh 2/3 c water 1/2 c unsweetened almond milk 1/4 c egg whites 1/2 medium RIPE banana 1/2 T chia 1 tsp Indonesian vanilla extract pinch of salt cinnamon and sweetener of your choice (to taste) 2 sliced strawberries . Directions: Place freekeh and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and stir in almond milk. Continue to stir well every 30 seconds or so for the next 2 minutes. Add egg whites, banana, salt, chia, cinnamon and sweetener and stir well. Reduce heat to low and continue to stir every minute for the next 10 minutes. Add more water if necessary. Cook until the freekeh is slightly soft and all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat stir in strawberries. Transfer to a bowl and add any additional toppings that you desire! . When I make this again, I will definitely add some chopped up walnuts. I think they would add an amazing texture and flavor to the freekeh. .
