- Rinse and drain freekeh. Place freekeh in a bowl with enough water to cover; soak for 10 minutes. Drain.
- Stir vegetable broth, water, and olive oil together in a large pot; bring to a boil. Stir freekeh, tomato paste, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt, and black pepper into vegetable broth mixture; bring mixture to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer freekeh mixture, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 1 hour. Remove freekeh from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
- Cook's Note:
- More liquid may be added to obtain desired tenderness. You may need to stir more frequently towards the end of cooking. I like to cook it until the sauce is thick and freekeh is tender.

First of all, I just got a massive bag of freekeh and was pretty dismayed to find out that out of the thousands of allrecipes there is just....one...containing the word freekeh! :/ So thank you ...
This was really good. I'm not a super health nut but am gradually trying to become one and so I pleasantly surprised that I liked this so well. It will be a regular at my house.
This was ok. I never cooked freekeh before so I was unsure of what the consistency should have been. It was sort of like half cooked rice. The flavor wasn't bad. Not sure if I would make this...
