Roasted Vegetable Freekeh



⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I absolutely love roasting vegetables like this and quite often make a huge batch so that I have a lovely stash in the fridge. On this occasion I stirred through cooked freekeh at the last minute, but often I use, puy lentils, rice, quinoa or couscous. I should mention that the cooking time will probably increase the larger the batch.
