FREEKEH – HEARTY & WHOLESOME
Freekeh is an ancient Palestinian grain that has become a hot new superfood. This wholesome specialty passed down from generation to generation is flame- roasted green wheat that is sun dried, then crushed. Since the wheat is harvested green, it is naturally higher in nutrients, especially fiber and protein..
Canaan’s organic Freekeh is a hearty grain with a smoky taste and firm texture. Serve it alone, as a salad with fresh vegetables and dried fruit, as a hearty soup, or together with roasted vegetables, meat or seafood. Freekeh is the most tasty and versatile superfood to hit the market.
MAFTOUL – HANDCRAFTED GOODNESS
Maftoul is a traditional artisan food made from
whole wheat bulgur and flour. Canaan Women’s Cooperatives make Maftoul according to tradition
by spreading bulgur on a tray, sprinkling it with water, then dusting it with whole wheat flour and hand rolling the bulgur into pearls. Maftoul is steamed in a colander, then dried so this handcrafted goodness can be shared with the world.
Traditionally, Maftoul is prepared with chicken stock, tomato sauce and chick peas, a favorite winter meal in Palestine. Enjoy its satisfying texture topped with your favorite stew or served cold as a salad tossed with fresh herbs and dried fruit.
