Rice cooker only for rice? No way! You can use this handy appliance to cook other grains, including wheat berries. Wheat berries are a healthy whole grain that can be eaten for breakfast, used in soups and salads, or mixed into bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry wheat berries
  • 2-2½ cups water*

Instructions

  • Rinse your wheat berries remove any dust and extra starch off before cooking. Spray the bottom of your rice cooker bowl with cooking spray to prevent any sticking.
  • Add your wheat berries and water to the rice cooker bowl. *The ratio of grain to water depends on how chewy you like your wheat berries. If you like them on the chewy side, add in 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of wheat berries. If you like them softer, you can add 2.5 cups water for every 1 cup of wheat berries.
  • Turn on your rice cooker and sit back and wait. Each rice cooker will cook a little differently, but for me, 1 cup of wheat berries takes about 45 minutes to cook. When the rice cooker is done, fluff with a fork and eat them as you enjoy!

Notes

1 cup of dry wheat berries equals 2 cups of cooked wheat berries.
