Fregula--any tips?

  • r

I just bought Fregula at the Co-0p but I don't know how to make it--It looks kind of like Israeli cous cous but darker and rougher. Please help.

  1. There are two ways to go. You can simply cook it like pasta and drain the water or you can cook it as a pilaf with aromatics, herbs, broth etc. Use 2 parts liquid to one part fregula. I prefer the second method because you get the full flavor of the toasted "grains".
