Maftoul is a traditional artisan food made from whole wheat bulgur and ﬂour. Canaan women’s cooperatives make maftoul according to tradition by spreading bulgur on a tray, sprinkling it with water, then dusting it with whole wheat ﬂour and hand rolling the bulgur into pearls. Maftoul is steamed in a colander, then dried so this handcrafted goodness can be shared with the world.
Traditionally, maftoul is prepared with chicken stock, tomato sauce, and chickpeas, a favorite winter meal in Palestine. Enjoy its satisfying texture topped with your favorite stew or served cold as a salad tossed with fresh herbs and dried fruit.
