*You can swap the freekeh for rice or other grains such as quinoa or bulgur.

**Baharat is a spice mix from the Middle East that contains spices such as paprika, coriander, pepper, cinnamon, cumin, cardamom, garlic, nutmeg and cloves. The composition might vary per brand and you can also make your own spice mix. Of simply use your favourite spices.

***You could use the cooking liquid to make a sauce, by adding tomato puree, a little bit of sugar and pepper to taste. Let reduce if the sauce is too thin.

Tip: you could also use other vegetables of your choice, such as zucchini, eggplant, onion, leek etc.
