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.
