To make ahead:
Refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Made from a variety of young wheat, this hearty grain is named for the way it's processed. "Freekeh" is derived from the Arabic word meaning "to rub," referring to the way roasted freekeh's outer casing is removed. Sometimes it's then cracked, making the freekeh quicker-cooking. Look for it near other grains in well-stocked grocery stores.
