An easy tutorial for how to cook freekeh perfectly every time, and the answers to all your questions about freekeh: What is it? What does it taste like? Is it gluten-free? And much more! You can use this super grain as a substitute for rice or pasta, and instead of other grains as well! It tastes somewhat like bulgur wheat and barley, just with some smokiness in the mix as well.
Storage:Uncooked wholegrain freekeh should be stored in an airtight container away from light, moisture, or heat (like in an unheated pantry). It can last several years if stored correctly! Cracked freekeh has a shorter shelf-life, and will last for just a few months in your pantry. Store it in the fridge or freezer if you want to keep it for longer than that. Once cooked, store freekeh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. But it can be frozen for up to 3 months so it’s a good idea to cook large batches and freeze them to use later!
