I had the pleasure of trying Freekeh Ancient Rice. I was sent Original, Rosemary Sage as well as Tamari and I must say that Rosemary Sage was my absolutely fave! I’m a sucker for Sage and fell in love with the yummy taste. It wasn’t too strong; instead, it made my taste-buds yearn for more and more.
When it comes to healthy foods, I’m all about trying and sampling anything I can get! It was more than thrilled to see all the various recipes Freekeh had to offer.
Some may wonder what this Freekeh brand is all about. Well, according to their website it says:
