Video: how to make frisella barley bread from Puglia Italy

If you like simple, tasty and very easy to make food then you should definitively try the frisella barley bread from Italy Puglia.

Frisella is made with whole grains, either with durum wheat semolina or with barley. Very rarely it is made with white flour.

There is nothing to cook with frisella and for us in Puglia, it makes a whole meal instead of pasta or rice.

In addition to being easy to make, it is also very tasty.

The secret is always to use very fresh and tasty ingredients. I used all the fresh ingredients I bought at the local market in Lecce: wild arugola, red cherry tomatoes and dry oregano. The most important ingredient are the capers in white wine vinegar. And of course frisella has to be enjoyed with the most intense Stile Mediterraneo extra virgin olive oil.

For the recipe follow the frisella recipe.
