Wheat Berries for Breakfast

with 2 comments


“There in Spirit” and the wholesome site 101 Cookbooks inspired me to try wheat berries as a hot cereal for breakfast. Afterall, I do have a five-pound bag of locally-grown whole soft white wheat to plow through. Here’s the 101 Cookbooks recipe. I topped the cereal with sauteed pear, apple, crystallized ginger, maple syrup and a little vanilla coconut milk yogurt. Should have reduced the volume of wheat berries, to have a less oaty, higher fruit to cereal ratio. It was better heated up the next day. But I still think I prefer steel-cut oatmeal and granola. How many varieties of hot cereal do we need. What grains do ya’ll eat hot for breakfast?

  2. Oatmeal I’ve done since birth, along with cream of wheat. Tried quinoa recently. Tried amaranth. I think quinoa is fast, easy, good tasting and a keeper.
