freekeh with chicken livers recipe

Chef-author Suzanne Zeidy’s recent cookbook, Cairo Kitchen, which bears the name of her Cairo restaurant, is more than just a colorful collection of recipes — it’s a slice of history. Learn the stories behind some of Egypt’s most beloved home-cooked dishes, street food and more. If you thought you loved chicken livers, wait til you pair them with freekeh, a delicious ancient grain. 

This dish is one of the Cairo Kitchen favorites. The wholesome freekeh is cooked with a pinch of allspice and carrots, giving it an ever-so-slight sweetness. The chicken livers are tender, and the almonds give an added crunch to the dish.
