Wheat Berries (Makes 4 servings)
- 1 cup (180 g) uncooked hard red winter wheat berries
- 3 cups (709 ml) of water
Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl (Makes 1 Serving)
- 1/4 cup (45 g) uncooked hard red winter wheat berries (about 3/4 cup cooked)
- 1/2 cup (113 g) Silk plain soy yogurt (or your favorite plant-based yogurt), or to taste
- 1/3 cup (55 g) fresh blueberries (or your favorite berries)
- 1 banana, sliced
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup, or to taste
- Sprinkle with ground cinnamon, to taste
To Cook Wheat Berries on the Stove
- Rinse the wheat berries in a colander and drain.
- Add wheat berries and water to a pot. You will want a 3:1 ratio, for 1 cup of wheat berries add 3 cups of water. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 45-60 minutes, checking after 45 minutes. If they’re not done, continue cooking, checking every 5-10 minutes. When the wheat berries are done, the kernels are plump and some have begun to split. They should be chewy, not mushy or tough. Taste to see if they’re done.
- When the wheat berries are done, drain and cool.
To Prepare Breakfast Bowl
- Mix the maple syrup and yogurt together.
- Then add the cooked wheat berries, banana, blueberries, and cinnamon.
- Alternatively, add all of the ingredients for the breakfast bowl to a bowl and give it a good stir to combine the maple syrup and yogurt.
