My first wheat berries experiment (not to be found on the blog) was a total bomb so I was really excited when this one turned out. It was light and flavorful.
4 cups water
1/2 cup uncooked wheat berries
3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen, shelled edamame, thawed
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar
3 Tbsp. EVOO
1/8 tsp salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp pepper, or to taste
Combine water and wheat berries in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until just tender, about 55 minutes.
Place wheat berries in a fine mesh strainer and run under cold water to cool quickly; drain well.
Combine wheat berries and remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 8 hours.
