  • 1 tsp chermoula spice

To Serve

  • 30g chermoula mayo (optional)

  1. Cook freekeh Bring a half full kettle to the boil. Pour boiling water into a small pot with a pinch of salt and bring back to the boil. Cook freekeh in pot of boiling water for about 15 minutes, until tender with a slight bite.
  2. Prep and cook vegetables Cut broccoli into very small florets; roughly chop spinach; dice cucumber 1cm. When freekeh has 3 minutes remaining, add broccoli to pot. Drain well.

Flip and cook a further 2 minutes for medium, or until cooked to your liking.
