WHEAT BERRIES WITH SHREDDED KALE & GOLDEN RAISINS

September 03, 2018 by Renee Tavoularis

WHEAT BERRIES WITH SHREDDED KALE & GOLDEN RAISINS

Unlike refined wheat products, wheat berries contain all three parts of the wheat kernel and provide beneficial amounts of fiber, protein and other essential nutrients. When cooked they have a chewy texture and nutty flavor making them perfect for adding into salads or simply enjoying on their own.

1 HOUR 10 MINUTES
VEGAN

Ingredients

1 cup wheat berries
2.5 cups water
2 cups finely shredded Lacinato kale (packed)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
¾ cups golden raisins 

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, add the wheat berries and the water. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  • Once the water has boiled, cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 1 hours or until the water has been absorbed and the wheat berries are tender.
  • In a large bowl, add the shredded kale, sea salt, black pepper, lemon juice and olive oil.
  • Gently massage the kale for 2-3 minutes or until it begins to soften. Set aside until wheat berries are cooked.
  • Add the cooked wheat berries and golden raisins to the bowl and combine well.
  • Serve at warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in a airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
