      Title: Absorption Method
 Categories:
      Yield: 1

      5 c  cold water,
      2 c  freekehtm,
      1 ts salt, and
      1 tb olive oil (optional)

in a large saucepan.  Bring to boil, stirring occasionally.  Cover the
saucepan with a tightly fitting lid.  Lower heat and simmer for 10-15
minutes if cooking cracked grain, and 40-45 minutes for whole grain.
Ensure all water is absorbed and grains are tender before serving.

For variety, try adding a chicken stock cube to the water when boiling.  Or
combine cooked FreekehTM with sautéed mushrooms and spring onions.  Or use
cooked FreekehTM instead of rice in fried rice.  The possibilities are
endless!

      Title: Egypt Firik
 Categories:
      Yield: 1

gyptian breakfast

he Egyptian equivalent of the 'Full English' is ful medames, served in the
humblest of homes and the haughtiest of hotels. According to Middle Eastern
food expert Claudia Roden, it is 'pre-Ottoman and pre-Islamic, claimed by
the Copts and probably as old as the Pharaohs'.

Curiously, although remnants of ful, which are a local variety of dried
brown fava or broad bean, have been found in the earliest archaeological
sites, the ancient Egyptians regarded them as unclean.

Medames is derived from the word for ashes, and refers to the traditional
method of cooking the beans over coals, a slow and gentle method that
suited the beans and could conveniently be done overnight, so that they
were plump and tender in the morning, ready for breakfast.

Flavouring vegetables (onions, tomatoes) and spices such as cumin, garlic
and hot pepper are added to the pot. Before serving, the beans may be
dressed with oil and lime, or the local clarified butter.

Then they may be eaten with wholemeal flatbread, hard-boiled or fried eggs,
onion, lime, tahini sauce and/or pickles.

Ful medames is not only served for breakfast, but to 'breakfast' on the
evenings of Ramadan. It's also a common sight on street food stalls and
mezze menus.

In the early spring in these countries, when the stores of winter wheat
have been used up and the new wheat is not yet ready for harvest, farmers
will gather piles of immature wheat from the fields, carefully set them
afire, then thresh the charred sheaves. The idea is to let the chaff and
straw burn, but to presreve the moist kernels of immature wheat. Asa result
of this burning, the kernels become imbued with a wood-smoke flaor that is
delicious, earthy, and unique. It takes time to clean green wheat, but it
is well worth the effort. It turns rancid very fast. I keep it in the
freezer.

      Title: People's Revolutionary Tabbouleh Vs Capitalist Pan Fried Hal
 Categories:
      Yield: 1

      1    smallish lebanese cucumber
           half a tomato
      2    spring onions
    1/4 c  fresh parsely
    1/4 c  fresh mint
    1/3 c  bulgur wheat or, yes,
           -freekeh
           clove of garlic
           half a lemon
           extra-virgin olive oil

This made enough for two generous helpings.
Well, it is not that revolutionary, but probably is sacrilege to anyone who
knows how to make it properly. Still, it turned out well.

Prepare the bulgar wheat (or freekeh) as directed. This may take some time.
I would normally use bulgar wheat, but went the freekeh because, well, I
had some lying around. If you use freekeh, take the time to use the
absorption method; it turns out much better than nuking it. I expect the
same would apply to bulgar wheat.

Chop well the cucumber, tomato and spring onion. Chop very well the parsely
and mint. Combine it all in a bowl and sprinkle with a bit of olive oil,
crush the clove of garlic and squeeze the juice of the lemon over the top.
Season with some freshly ground black pepper (or, if your battery-powered
pepper grinder has run flat, use a mortar and pestle and crush it... and
the pepper).

Mix well and set aside for at least half an hour for the flavours to also
combine.

Now, go find some haloumi (a cheese, in case you were wondering). This may
take some time. When you find some, prepare it. I slice mine so that it is
in slabs roughly 5x3x1cm. Two such slabs is a good dinner ration for one. I
also let the prepared slabs drain for a few minutes to get rid of the
extra brine.

Add ample olive oil to a pan and heat it well, but not so it is
blazing/smoking hot. Throw the haloumi in and fry quickly, not more than a
few minutes on each side. The pale white cheese will go a golden brown,
pull it out of the pan before it gets too dark and goes rubbery. Cooked
properly, it should be soft and melt in your mouth when eaten.

Squeeze the other half of the lemon over the haloumi and serve while still
hot. I was going to do a mini antipasto on the side with the tabbouleh and
haloumi but did not have anything of the sort in the house. So I buttered
some rye bread insetad and had that.

      Title: Petra
 Categories:
      Yield: 1

           reekeh

Adelaide-based entrepreneur Tony Lutfi was introduced to freekeh, a
traditional staple grain of Jordan and Syria, when dining at the home of a
member of the Jordanian royal family. They joked that he was lucky to have
it there, because served anywhere else, the tiny stones often lurking among
the grains were liable to break his teeth.

In time that passing comment became Lutfi's inspiration for a new venture -
production of stone-free freekeh - and, lo, it's now a top seller in
Jordan and other regions of the Middle East.

Freekeh is young or 'green' wheat grain that is roasted to give a rich,
smoky and somewhat meaty taste, and has been part of Jordanian and Syrian
diets since around 2300 BC. Being a staple food, it's not showcased as
often as Jordan's special-occasion lamb dish mansaf, which you'll read
about in every guide. Instead freekeh is characteristic of humble home
cooking: made into rustic soups, pilaffs studded with almonds and pine
kernels, and served with roast or poached chicken.

You'll occasionally find it in restaurants that include home-style dishes.
One is the Petra Kitchen, a distinctive venue in which all furniture and
hand-embroidered linens are produced in Jordan.

      Title: Some Facts On Freekeh
 Categories:
      Yield: 1

freekah

Freekah is processed from durum wheat, and harvested while the grains are
still young and green. The grains are parched roasted and dried. It has a
nutty crunchy texture with a slight smoky flavour and makes an excellent
alternative to rice. Freekeh was first discovered in 2300BC in the Eastern
Mediterranean when a city under siege harvested their crop early. When the
green wheat was set on fire the villagers rubbed away the burnt outer layer
to discover the green grain.
Nutritionally Freekeh is a powerhouse. Tested by the CSIRO, it is a low GI
food with four times the fibre content of brown rice. It has a high protein
content compared to other grains, is low in fat and rich in calcium, iron
and zinc.
