Freekah refers to various types of whole wheat berries (usually durum) that are harvested early when still green, then fire-threshed -- so it tastes a bit smokier than other whole grains. You can boil it and use it in salads, add it to soups, or cook it like a risotto or pilaf. Here's a killer freekah salad recipe: http://www.food52.com/recipes...
