Making Freekeh Chowder! If you have read my posts Freekeh with Chicken and Freekeh with fish, you’ll know how much I and my family enjoy this whole grain and it is full of nutrient. I love my carbs, and although I try to cook healthy food, I’m not fond of vegetables, so you guessed it right, my carbs come mainly from pasta, noodles, and rice!
When I asked myself what is it that makes me crave that type of carbs, I found that it’s the chewing part. You can’t chew much on vegetables and fruits hence you don’t feel full or at least I don’t feel full.
Making Freekeh Chowder
I do have rice and pasta in moderation, and in fact, I rarely crave them now. Freekeh is the best alternative, it gives you the chewiness you seek in pasta and noodles and it can easily replace rice in many dishes.
Today I made Freekeh Chowder, it’s creamy and has vegetables, also low in carbs and one serving can keep you full for hours. This Chowder can replace a whole meal.
There is one thing you have to keep in mind when buying Freekeh. There are two types, uncracked and cracked Freekeh. The uncracked like the one I used in this recipe will take up to 50 minutes to cook, but the cracked will take max 20 minutes.
Let’s make some Freekeh Chowder.
