This *was* tasty and I really liked the flavor of the bay with the freekeh. What I didn't like and wasn't really expecting it to bother me as much was the color of the cooked freekeh. It was a drab green and it took a good amount of enhancement with colorful vegetables and herbs to make it more visually appealing and ultimately more palatable. It was an interesting detour and my first time testing freekeh and I know it won't be my last. Made for Summer NA*ME tag/2013.
