Green wheat

“Freekeh” or “Farik” is roasted green wheat that is native to the Levant region. According to legend, Freekeh originated around 2300 BC when the attackers of a Mediterranean village set the green wheat field on fire before they retreated. When the villagers returned, they tried to salvage their wheat crops by rubbing away  the burnt chaff.
