Simple Stove Top Wheat Berries
Servings: 4 1/2 cup servings
Wheat berries are a very nutritious whole grain that can easily be made on the stove top at home.
- 1 cup dry wheat berries
- 3 cups water may need more, depending on desired chewiness
It’s a good idea to rinse wheat berries under cool water before cooking. This washes away any dirt, dust or extra starch that has collected on them in storage. *Optional for faster cook time-soak wheat berries in clean water for 8 hours, drain and rinse before use.
Add the wheat berries and water to a sauce pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
Once boiling, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Allow to simmer 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, check tenderness of the grains. If they are too chewy for you, add in another ¼ cup of water and continue to simmer, covered. Continue checking about every 5-10 minutes, adding in ¼ cup water and continuing to simmer until they have reached your desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy!
