Get a nourishing start to your day with this simple, satisfying breakfast bowl. Freekeh has a chewy-tender texture like steel-cut oats, which could also be used in this recipe. Both whole grains store and reheat well, so you can make the base for this bowl ahead of time; then just warm it up and add the fruit and nut toppings just before serving.
- 1¼ cups freekeh
- 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 4 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds
- Cook freekeh according to package directions. Grate 1 teaspoon of zest and squeeze 1 tablespoon of juice from lemon; while freekeh is hot, stir in maple syrup, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Cover, and let stand 5 minutes.
- Spoon ¾ cup freekeh into each bowl. Top with ½ cup blueberries and 1 tablespoon toasted slivered almonds.
