Build a quick and delicious dinner bowl loaded with lemon balm-pumpkin seed pesto, crunchy cucumbers, fresh-cooked chickpeas, green beans, and a new-to-us grain, freekah! New to you too? "Freekeh (sometimes called farik) is wheat that’s harvested while young and green. It's roasted over an open fire, then the straw and chaff are burned and rubbed off. The grain on the inside is too young and moist to burn, so what you're left with is a firm, slightly chewy grain with a distinct flavor that's earthy, nutty, and slightly smoky."
