Sweet and Savory Wheat Berries: What I've Learned So Far
If you've never tried them, I hope this recipe for sweet and savory wheat berries turns you into a fan! I generally find them in bulk (called winter wheat berries), and they're a really versatile grain. They look a little like brown rice, and if you feel really adventurous you can grind them into flour - but that's not what we'll be doing with them for this recipe.
Wheat berries are really healthy, because they're a true whole grain. The wheat kernel is left whole so pretty much all of the nutrients are still there. They've got a chewy texture and a nutty flavor, and they're versatile enough to be served with salad dressing and veggies, as a breakfast treat with milk, honey and cinnamon, or in this case, as a healthy, hearty entree.
