Recipe's preparation

    Yoghurt dressing
  1. Combine the cumin, honey and yoghurt in a small bowl and set aside.

  2. Salad
  3. Place coriander, parsley and red onion into jug and chop 3 seconds, speed 7.  Set aside in a large salad bowl and rinse the TM bowl.


     


    Cut the pomegranate into quarters and place in TM bowl.  Select counter-clockwise operation; 2 seconds speed 4.  Pull the skin and white pith out.  Place cold water in jug and pour into a strainer to seperate the seeds and remaining pith.  Place seeds with the coriander/parsley and onion mix.  


     


    Weigh the freekah and puy/french lentils into the TM basket.  Rinse under tap water and place in the TM bowl.  Place 1250grams water into the jug and lock lid; cook lentils and freekah 10 minutes, speed 3, 100 degrees. 


     


    Using your spatula stir the lentils and add more water (enough to cover the lentils and freekeh). Cook for another 12 minutes, speed 3, 80 degrees. Once cooked, run under cold tap water to help cool down the cooked freekeh and lentils.


     


    Toast the pumpkin seeds, slivered almonds and sunflower seeds to your liking (I usually do it on a baking tray in the oven, but you can also do it in the thermomix or in a fry pan).


     


    Add the freekeh and lentils to the salad bowl; add raisins, juice of lemon, olive oil and toasted seeds/nuts and stir/toss to combine.


     


    Serve with yoghurt dressing and enjoy!

Tip

You can buy freekeh in the gluten free/organic area of your supermarket.  I have managed to find it at both coles and woolworths!

    Soooo yummy! Heaps easier than my old recipe. We didn't have pomegranate so used a cut orange instead and was great. I cooked the lentils/free for an extra 10 mins.

  • I cheated and added a 90 sec

    Submitted by leahl on 9. January 2016 - 22:09.

    I cheated and added a 90 sec microwave pouch of rice/quinoa mix instead of the freekah/lentils.  It was still really beautiful and quick to make.  This will be a regular in our household. Thankyou!

    Amazing! I added few lettuce leaves chopped roughly and also few reddishes slices thinly. I made it for Easter and used it as a side dish to smoked salmon. Really nice, thank you!

    Amazing flavour and texture. Really loved the pops of sweetness from the pomeganate. A definite winner in our house!

    Our Family Favorite!  I've only had my TM for a month and used to make the "Hellenic Republic" version of this dish pre-TM.  It's so much quicker and easier now (I've made it 3 times already) - thank you so much for the recipe.

    Btw you cook the grains in the basket so it doesn't matter which way the blades circulate.

    Delicious interpretation of the " Hellenic Republic Grain Salad" for me the grains were under done, will cook them for an extra 10 minutes next time.

  • This is delicious and healthy

    Submitted by cathyjmac on 19. October 2014 - 13:35.

    This is delicious and healthy too. I think it should be on Counter-clockwise operation for cooking lentils and freekah.
