Q: What can you tell me about wheat berries?

A: Wheat berries are whole-wheat kernels. They look like thick, short grains, similar to brown rice. When boiled, cooked wheat berries have a chewy bite and subtle nutty, earthy flavor.

Wheat berries are loaded with nutrients and are as easy as rice to make.

Prepare in salted boiling water just like other grains. Add cooked wheat berries to soups or even chili. Serve hot as a side dish with hearty mushrooms or cold for a satisfying salad full of flavor and whole-grain goodness. Wheat berries' nutty flavor is great with fresh vegetables and dried fruit such as cherries or cranberries.
