Ingredients

Bowl

  • 1 cup Kamut
  • 8 cups water, divided
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 medium head broccoli, chopped
  • 1/4 large red onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins

Herb Oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbs. chopped chives
  • 1 tbs. chopped parsley
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt

Tahini Dressing

  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 tbs. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

STEP 1
Add Kamut to a large bowl and submerge in 4 cups of water. Soak overnight, and up to 24 hours in advance.
STEP 2
Prepare herb oil. Place garlic, chives, and parsley in a heatproof bowl or small saucepan. In a separate saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat to 200 degrees F, or until shimmering but not smoking. Carefully pour the hot oil over the minced aromatics. Season with salt and set aside overnight.
STEP 3
The following day, strain the Kamut. Strain the herb-infused oil, discarding the herbs and reserving the oil.
STEP 4
Add the soaked Kamut, four cups of water, and a pinch of salt to a large saucepan over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 50 to 60 minutes, or until tender.
STEP 5
In a small bowl, whisk the strained herb oil with the tahini-dressing ingredients until smooth.
STEP 6
In a large mixing bowl, combine Kamut, broccoli, red onion, golden raisins, and tahini dressing. Enjoy within five days.

A Middle Eastern classic, these little patties are made with garbanzo beans and fresh parsley. Serve with Lemon-Tahini Sauce (recipe below), chopped lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese and whole-grain pita bread. Terrific for lunch.
