Looking for a new grain to try? Try cracked wheat. It has a nutty flavor and chewy texture. It's made by milling raw wheat berries into smaller pieces, a process that reduces cooking time but still preserves the nutrients and fiber. I love it because it's pre-cooked and is very quick to prepare. You can use cracked wheat in tabbouleh or different types of kibbeh.
· 2 cups fine cracked wheat
· 4-5 large fresh tomatoes
· 1 small white onion
· 2 Tbsp. kibbeh spice mix
· 1 Tsp. salt
· 4 Tbsp. olive oil
Place the cracked wheat in a medium bowl. In the same bowl, grate tomatoes on largest holes of a grater until all that's left is the flattened tomato skin and stem; discard the rest. Grate onions using the same method. Add kibbeh spice mix, salt & olive oil. Knead mixture.
Let it sit for 15 minutes before serving.
