Freekeh Pilaf with Mint and Pine Nuts
Freekeh Pilaf is a nutritious alternative to rice pilaf, full of fiber and protein!
jar or fresh
salt and pepper to taste
or water. (I used low sodium organic chicken broth)
handful of fresh mint, parsley and cilantro
Place oil, onion, and one clove garlic into saucepan. Sauté on medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add Freekeh to pot, and then add the cinnamon, allspice, coriander, salt and pepper.
Add chicken broth or water and bring to a boil.
Cover, reduce heat to low. Let simmer for 20 minutes. (It will smell sooo yummy at this point!)
Remove pan from heat and let sit for 5 minutes, covered. Then, remove lid and fluff with fork.
Stir in herbs, mix well, and top with pine nuts! Wonderful alternative for rice pilaf!
Optional: Mix together 3/4 cup Greek yogurt, garlic, and lemon juice and top on pilaf. Very tasty!!
