I added one cup of freekeh to a pot with along with 2 cups of water and threw in the following veg- coourgette, carrot, pistachios, chick peas, a handful of dates and a sprinkling of dried rose leaves.

I also added spices Nutmeg Garlic Mint All spice Turmeric Chilli flakes And let it do it’s thing for 20 min or so. I served it up in a red cabbage leaf for no reason other than I think it looks pretty and isn’t it fun to eat your bowl! One of my favourite dishes of the last few weeks.
