Wheat Berry Ready

by Heather

I finally remembered to make my wheat berries!!! I got these ages ago, and only think of them in the morning when I want to add them to my oats, but they take awhile to prepare so I always just say “forget it!”.  (Wheat berries (or one word- wheatberries) are the entire grain except the hull– talk about whole grains!)

I saw them in the pantry last night and threw them on the counter so I’d see them and remember to get them going before I went to bed.

I made all the wheat berries I had so the whole bunch would be ready and waiting whenever I wanted them. They’re easy to make, just take a bit-o-time.

1. Cover in water- about 3 1/2 cups water for every cup wheat berries. Let soak over night.

2. In the morning, bring to boil, then simmer 50-60 minutes. Add water if needed.

3. Cool & store. Or eat instantly :)

The wheat berries add such a wonderful depth to oatmeal. They contribute the perfect amount of chewiness without making the bowl of oats overly filling. I’m in love! :)

I had pumpkin chai oats again this morning, but this time with wheat berries of course. And added pecans on top.
