Freekah Burgers Recipes

Ingredients :

1 cup (250g / 8 oz) cracked freekah

2 zucchini

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 eggs

1/2 cup (25g / 3/4 oz) chopped fresh mint

1/2 cup (25g / 3/4 oz) chopped fresh coriander

2 tsp finely grated lemon rind

1/2 cup (45g / 1.5 oz) wheatgerm

2 tbsp plain flour

Method :

In a pan, combine the freekah with 2 cups (500ml / 16 fl oz) water and 1/2 tsp salt and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain, transfer to a bowl and cool for 10 minutes. Grate the zucchini and squeeze out any moisture. Heat half the oil and cook the onion for 3 minutes, then mix into the freekah with the remaining ingredients and some pepper. Form 6 patties and chill for 30 minutes. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and cook the patties for 10 minutes, or until brown. Serve in a toasted bun with salad.

Note - Freekah is wheat picked young and green. It is roasted and sold as whole grain or cracked grain. Both are very nutritious, but the whole grain takes longer to cook.
