Method

  • Step 1

    Soak the freekeh or bulgur wheat in cold water for 5 minutes, drain and rinse under running water, allowing to drain well. Melt the butter in a large pan, add the shallots and sauté over a medium heat for approximately 5 minutes until softened.

  • Step 2

    Add the freekeh and vegetable stock, simmer gently for 10-20 minutes, the freekeh needs a little longer than bulgar wheat and has a slightly chewy, nutty texture and taste.

  • Step 3

    Add the broccoli, cover and cook for a few minutes, turn the heat off and allow everything to steam under the lid in the residual heat for another 5 minutes, then leave to cool a little.

  • Step 4

    Stir in the prawns, parsley and a good squeeze of lemon juice, season to taste.

Cook’s tip: Delicious served with a spoonful of natural yoghurt or crème fraiche and a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts.
