Making wheat berries in the crock pot is ridiculously easy! With almost no effort, you’ll have these healthy whole grains ready to eat anyway you like them! Add them to soups, salads or eat them for breakfast.

Ingredients

  • 1 cups dry wheat berries*
  • 3 cups water

Instructions

  • Rinse wheat berries under cool water before cooking. This washes away any dirt, dust or extra starch that has collected on them in storage.
  • Add wheat berries and water into crock pot. Cover with lid.
  • Cook on high for at least 4 hours or low for at least 8. Wheat berries can be left on low overnight.
  • When cooking time is complete, drain wheat berries. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

*You can adjust the recipe depending on how many cooked wheat berries you need. 1 cup of dry wheat berries equals 2 cups of cooked wheat berries.
**Since most crock pots are so large, I highly suggest cooking a large batch of wheat berries and freezing the extras.  See blog post for freezing instructions. 
***You can season wheat berries with a variety of spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg for a sweet breakfast.  Or any of your favorite savory spices to accommodate the recipe you are making.  You could also use broth instead of water to give the cooked wheat berries more flavor if you are using them in a savory dish.
