We love wheat berries! This chewy, nutty whole grain is a delicious addition to soups, salads, bowls, and more.


  • 1 cup dry wheat berries
  • 3 cups water, more as needed


  • Bring a pot of water to a boil.
  • Rinse the wheat berries and add to the pot. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 25 to 40 for soft wheat berries, 45 to 90 minutes for hard wheat berries, or until tender. The timing will depend on your wheat berries. Add more water if necessary. Drain.


Yield: 3 cups cooked wheat berries
