Brand: Mount of Green Olives
Ingredients: Roasted Green Wheat
Before Mediterranean people adopted rice in their diet, roasted green wheat or Freekeh was the main staple. Wheat was harvested while still green and smoked in the fields, farmers then cracked it (or keep it whole) and stored it to eat throughout the year. Freekeh is an ancient Palestinian grain that has become a hot new superfood. This wholesome specialty passed down from generation to generation is ﬂame-roasted green wheat that is sun dried, then crushed. Since the wheat is harvested green, it is naturally higher in nutrients, especially ﬁber and protein. With a smoky, savory flavor, freekah is often eaten with meats and vegetables and can be added to soups, stews and salads.
