In your bag
- ½ cup freekeh
- 1 organic yellow onion
- 1 cup cooked chickpeas
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- Sun Basket warming turmeric spice blend (ground turmeric - granulated garlic - coriander - cumin - ground ginger)
- 15 ounces organic chopped peeled butternut squash
- 4 or 5 sprigs organic fresh mint
- Sun Basket garlic yogurt (Greek yogurt - fresh garlic)
Freekeh is wheat that has been harvested before the grain has ripened and is then roasted or sun-dried. Boasting a wealth of nutritional benefits, it’s full of fiber and contains minerals such as selenium, potassium, and magnesium.
Make It Ahead
The freekeh and the butternut squash stew (Steps 1 and 2) can be prepared up to 1 day ahead. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate separately overnight. When ready to serve, gently rewarm separately, adding 1 to 2 tablespoons water to loosen the stew if needed, as you proceed with Step 3.
