Cherry, Chicken, and Pecan Wheat Berry Salad
Nutty, chewy, robust wheat berries work well in stews, stir-fries, and hearty salads. Cook as you would pasta, in a large pot of boiling water. Check for doneness after 30 minutes, but know they may take as long as an hour to reach desired tenderness. Drain when done. One cup uncooked yields about 2 cups cooked. Per cooked cup: 320 calories, 14g protein, 12g fiber.
First up is our Cherry, Chicken, and Pecan Wheat Berry Salad. What a fantastic combo! If you can't find fresh cherries, add ¼ cup boiling water to ¼ cup dried cherries. Let stand 10 minutes; drain and chop.
