Freekeh and Prawn Salad

I'm having a go with those new grains again, one of them is freekeh, it has an interesting texture a bit like bulgar wheat but is a bit nuttier and chewier. This is a simple salad using up ingredients from the fridge.

Freekeh and Prawn Salad (from Appetite Magazine)
(Serves 2)

100g freekeh
1 tbsp oil
1/2 onion, chopped
130ml veg stock
200g tenderstem broccoli
150g cooked king prawns
handful fresh parsley, chopped
1 lemon

Soak the freekeh in cold water for 5 mins, drain, rinse under the cold tap and allow to drain well. Heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion and saute over a medium heat for about 5 mins until softened.

Add the freekeh and veg stock and simmer gently for 20-30 mins. Add the broccoli, cover and cook for a few mins. Turn the heat off and allow everything to steam under the lid for another five mins. Leave to cool.

Stir in the prawns, parsley and a good squeeze of lemon juice, season to taste and serve with a spoonful of natural yoghurt or some toasted pine nuts.
