This Freekeh & Leek Salad with Miso Dressing is packed with delicious flavours.
My fridge is in mid-week dire straits as the kids have worked their way through this week’s supply already. Another growth spurt coming up surely!
Craving something healthy and fresh, I decided to make a salad with the only thing left in my vegetable drawer – two humble leeks!
In less than 30 mins, I whipped up this recipe for a nutritious and healthy lunch. The miso and ginger dressing adds just the right amount of zing.
I use Freekeh which has a nice texture. I really like its earthy and nutty taste. You can buy freekeh in health stores. For those of you who are not familiar with it, freekeh is toasted wheat harvested when still green. It is high in protein, fibre, iron, calcium, zinc and has a low GI.
If you need a gluten-free option, feel free to replace freekeh with any other grain.
