Freekeh with broad beans and chipolata sausages is an easy, surprising and delicious dinner or lunch. Seasoned with za’atar for great flavour!
Easy & quick dinners are great for weekdays. I think I don’t nearly share enough of these recipes, so I plan to upload more! Today I start with this delicious freekeh dish, that takes 15 minutes to prepare.
I need a bigger kitchen
Uhh, I may have said this before: my kitchen is wayyyyy too small. How am I supposed to store all my ingredients and cooking supplies in a kitchen that’s around 2 square metres?! A while ago I decided to start using closet space in the living room area as well, and that’s helping. A bit. Because every time I walk past a cooking store I want to buy buy buy!
Sometimes I allow myself to dream. Of this big kitchen, I mean. One day we’ll move out of our lovely apartment and into a new one, with the kitchen as centrepiece. If it’s up to me. I’m sure the boyfriend will agree 😉
Actually I think it’s for the best that I don’t have this huge kitchen yet. The limited space keeps me from buying a kitchenaid (I already have a magimix!) and numerous plates, sets of cutlery and baking/cooking appliances such as a bundt cake mould. However, I do plan to visit vintage/thrift stores with Louise soon… We need more props!
Freekeh with broad beans and chipolata sausages
I almost forgot why I started writing about this bigger kitchen. You see, the boyfriend sometimes gets this…. Cleaning rage. Is that a thing? I think it is. Like this weekend, he was just going to get himself a snack and he ended up re-organizing the entire pantry. (We don’t even have a pantry, but I mean the 2 huge drawers filled from top to bottom with numerous ingredients!)
And then I realized that I have way more to cook with than I thought. So, I decided to swap the rice I planned to use for the freekeh the boyfriend found on his adventure in our piles of food :p And it turned out to be quite a good idea! The nuttiness of the freekeh really adds to this dish.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did, and if you can’t find freekeh in your pantry: brown rice, couscous, buckwheat or any other grain would work as well 😉
See you soon!
