Meet freekeh ("free-kuh"), a toasted and cracked wheat similar to bulgur. It has a slightly smoky and nutty flavor and a pleasant chew, and is a good source of fiber and protein. If you can't find it in your grocery store, cooked brown rice is a great substitute.

Ingredients

Directions

Add 8 cups water and the freekeh to a medium saucepan and boil until tender, about 20 minutes. Strain.

Meanwhile, soak the onions in ice water in a small bowl for 10 minutes. Strain well.

Whisk together the onions, basil, dill, parsley, oil, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add the cooked freekah and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl and add the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Serve warm or at room temperature. (Alternatively, serve chilled, adding an additional tablespoon of lemon juice just before serving.)
