Freekeh is a grain that’s very popular in Italy - you’ll usually find it in soups and salads. It’s got a good kick of fibre, iron and even some zinc but most importantly, it has the perfect taste and texture for this healthy January dinner.

Instructions
1

Bring a large pot of water to the boil with ¼ tsp of salt. Add the freekeh and continue to boil gently for 12 mins. Drain, cover with a tea towel and keep to one side until everything else is ready.

2

Remove the core of the pepper and chop into small cubes ½ cm thick, if your knife skills allow. Finely slice the spring onions.

3

Make a dressing using the zest and juice of half the lemon, ¼ tsp of salt, the zahtar spice and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Give it all a good whisk.

4

Mix the freekeh with the diced red pepper, spring onion, pomegranate seeds and half the dressing. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper to your liking.

5

Divide the salad between your bowls and top with picked mint leaves, crumbled feta and a drizzle more of the dressing.
