Time to Get Freekeh!!

Occasionally, I get a little freaky (yes, pun intended) and want to try some new foods. Kohlrabi, golden beets, eggplant — which isn’t so freaky but I had never tried it before — are all foods that I’ve tested out recently thanks to my CSA share and my desire to not waste any of our yummy, organic, local, fresh foods.

Can't wait to see how both of these taste!

However, freekeh (pronounced free-kuh) is one food that I had not heard of until recently and I have never tried it before! But…lucky me!…I get to try it tomorrow night! I will be writing a review and sharing the recipe here on my blog. I’m thinking jambalaya since I haven’t had any in a while, and I think the freekeh would be a great rice substitute in that dish.

If the rest of my family doesn't love my jambalaya, that just means more for me!!

Make sure you check back for the recipe and my full (and honest!) review. And because I’m such a giving person, I will be hosting a giveaway for one lucky reader to win their own bag of freekeh! Stay tuned for those details!
