Freekah Asparagus, Rocket and Strawberry Salad

Preparation: 30 minutes

Serves: 4-6


  • 1 cup Freekah
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 punnet strawberries, quartered
  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • ½ cup parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups rocket leaves
  • 100g Greek feta
  • ¼ cup olive oil (dressing)
  • 2 tbsp paprika (dressing)
  • 1 tbsp honey (dressing)
  • Salt and pepper (dressing)


  1. Add freekah to a saucepan with 3 cups of water. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer until all water is evaporated. This should take about 20-30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent from sticking. Then remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes before running a fork through the freekah to make it fluffy.
  2. Meanwhile, steam the asparagus in the microwave for 2 minutes then add to a bowl of iced water to stop the cooking and set aside.
  3. When the freekah is completely cool, add in strawberries, spring onion, parsley, rocket leaves and Greek feta. Then drain the asparagus and chop into 2 inch pieces and mix through the salad.
  4. To make the dressing add all ingredients into a small bowl and whisk with a fork. Serve on the side.
