  • 2 cups freekeh (a kind of wheat berry), rinsed
  • Coarse salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced


  1. In a large pot, bring freekeh
    and 10 cups well-salted water
    to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until grains are
    tender but still chewy, about 45
    minutes. Remove from heat and
    stir in garlic. Let cool slightly. Pour
    freekeh and cooking liquid onto
    a rimmed baking sheet to cool.

Cook's Note

Refrigerate freekeh in liquid for up to 5 days.
