Colorful, crunchy veggies with easy to make Freekeh

Water sauté veggies and pile them high on top of Freekeh, the Ancient grain that has more fiber and protein than quinoa and rice with fewer calories. I love it as is or you can add in some Well Your World Asian Everything Sauce or your own favorite Thai peanut sauce. I don't add any spices as I love the flavors and crunch from these vegetables but feel free to spice it up as you like.


Ingredients:


1 red pepper - diced

1 small sweet onion - diced

3-4 baby bok choy - chopped

4 cloves garlic - minced

8 oz. mushrooms - sliced

1 can water chestnuts, drained and sliced

zucchini and carrots -sliced or diced

1 C Freekeh (cooked)

*Additional vegetables recommended that I did not have on hand are julienned zucchini and carrots, cherry tomatoes and yellow peppers.
