Disclosure: This is a compensated post in collaboration with Bob’s Red Mill. As usual all opinions are my own. Thank you Bob’s Red Mill for making NJB awesomeness possible. By the way, I am elated to be working with Bob’s Red Mill as a recipe developing food blogger. I have been using Bob’s Red Mill products for decades. I love the company, and what they stand for and what they do. It is a treat to live here in Portland and have to opportunities that I have had to tour the Mill, bloggers style, and meet Bob. He is genuinely an incredible person with the utmost awesome intentions as a business man. I am super grateful!
Let’s just get it out there, start with serious honesty… I am in love obsessed with Bob’s Red Mill Organic Cracked Freekeh. It is slightly chewy, nutty, versatile, highly nutritious, and filling. Ok, now that we have that cleared up I can talk about using it lately. Another honest alert, Brian does not love all whole grains like I do. I could eat brown rice, freekeh, and any grain all day every day, the nuttier the better. He is a bit reserved. He likes quinoa, brown rice hidden with goat cheese and sausage, and white jasmine rice is his favorite. But I have to forget that, and continue to cook my glorious whole grains, including Freekeh. His verdict, he likes it, and I am relieved.
You can eat it cold, or hot. Add it to salads, as a simple side dish, or add greens to it for a warm side dish. My new favorite breakfast is this freekeh breakfast bowl with coconut milk. I love coconut milk, not coconut water. Although you can use milk, or water, the coconut milk is creamy, and gives the freekeh a luscious texture that is super good for breakfast. So good. And then adding fruit, seeds, nuts, and dried fruit for texture makes for a filling, and healthy breakfast.
