Chewy, nutty, and fiber-rich, wheat berries add satisfying bite and bulk to breakfast. Soaking can help decrease cook time and make for a plumper, more tender grain. Take these berries and use them in a Roasted Grape and Goat Cheese or a Wilted Spinach and Fried Egg wheat berry bowl for a delicious breakfast. 

How to Make It

Step 1

Place wheat berries in a bowl with enough water to cover. Soak 12 hours or overnight. Drain.

Step 2

Combine wheat berries, 1 1/2 cups water, and salt in a saucepan over high, and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium; cook until tender, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove pan from heat; let steam, covered, 15 minutes. Drain excess liquid.
