Wheat Berries with Vegetables

Wheat Berries are the full grain and just missing the hard outer hull which is not edible.  It contains the germ, bran and endosperm and all the vitamins and minerals are retained.

I made this soup but it turned out very thick so it's more of a vegetable/grain dish.

Add wheat berries to a pot of water and bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer until they're softened but not too soft and mushy.  Add your vegetables when they're somewhat softened and simmer for another 10 minutes.  They double in size so if you want to make soup with them, you'll need to add alot of water/broth.  You can also eat them as a porridge and add apples, cinnamon or whatever you like.  They're a nice change to regular oatmeal or to barley in a soup.
