You’ll give your jaws a workout eating this grain!
I like most grains, but had never cooked wheat berries before ~ it’s a good thing to finally be on the wheat berry bandwagon!
Wheat berries are the entire wheat kernel, containing lots of fiber and nutrients. Prepared, they’re nutty, chewy and robust, working well in hearty salads, stews, cereals and stir-fries.
This is a slightly adapted Cooking Light recipe. I wasn’t sure if it would win Bill over ~ it only did a smidgen.
For me, it was a healthy, tasty salad, a little chewy, with a little tang and delicious.
Next time, I will add dried cherries, some celery, or maybe chopped apples or cherry tomatoes.
