We used a simple fried rice–style preparation for freekeh, a chewy, nutty whole grain. Eggs and lots of colorful veggies mixed in make it a complete one-dish meal. If you can’t find freekeh, you can use farro instead.

Ingredients

Uncooked freekeh

1 cup(s)

Water

2½ cup(s)

Table salt

¼ tsp(s)

Raw egg(s)

4 large

Cilantro

4 tbsp(s), chopped fresh

Black pepper

tsp(s)

Peanut oil

4 tsp(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

3 medium, sliced

Garlic clove(s)

3 clove(s), medium, minced

Ginger root

2 tbsp(s), minced, peeled, fresh

Uncooked sugar snap peas

2 cup(s), trimmed and halved

Broccoli florets

2 cup(s), small

Uncooked bell pepper(s)

1 item(s), medium, red variety

Soy sauce

2 tbsp(s)

Sriracha hot sauce

2 tbsp(s), optional, for serving

Fresh lime(s)

½ item(s), cut into 4 wedges for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine freekeh, water, and 0.5 ml (⅛ tsp) salt in small saucepan and bring to boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until freekeh is tender, about 25 minutes. Drain in colander. Rinse under cold running water until cool; drain again.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, 2 tablespoons cilantro, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in wok or large deep skillet over high heat. Add egg mixture and swirl to coat pan; stir-fry until set, about 1 minute. Transfer to small bowl.
  3. Wipe out wok. Heat remaining 3 teaspoons oil in wok over high heat. Add scallions, garlic, and ginger; stir-fry just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add snap peas, broccoli, and bell pepper; stir-fry just until snap peas and broccoli turn bright green, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add freekeh and soy sauce; stir-fry until hot, about 2 minutes longer.
  4. Divide freekeh mixture evenly among 4 bowls; top evenly with egg and remaining 2 tablespoons cilantro. Serve with sriracha and lime wedges.
  5. Serving size: 1 1/2 cups

Notes

Prep ahead: Cook up the freekeh for this meal a day or two ahead and refrigerate. Just heat it for an extra couple of minutes when you add it to the wok in step 3.
