Frikeh Soup (Wheat Grain & Shredded Chicken Soup)

A hearty and nutritious soup that can be made the night before, this Middle-Eastern dish is jam-packed with protein and fiber, all thanks to the meat and vegetables that make up a majority of the ingredients used. The Frikeh (an Arabic word for "to rub") is a common staple in Middle Eastern cuisine made from green durum wheat that has been roasted before being polished to remove the shells. The roasting and rubbing also gives the wheat its distinctive savory and smoky flavor. Frikeh is also easy on the stomach, making it one of the absolute perfect pre-dawn meals to wake up to.
