Hi! Not sure if I can ask for recipes on this thread. I just discovered wheat berries. We received ~4 pounds of them in our CSA so I am looking for yummy recipes to use them in. I tried a basic one tonight mixing them with sauteed veggies and scrambled eggs. It was delicious, but I am hoping to branch out and maybe even get my kids to eat them without too much cringing. Thanks!

Susan - I got some great ideas on a show on our local PBS--I'm including a link--it shows it's not on their schedule right now--but there is a PDF of the transcript--and the chef has great ideas to prepare and include more grains and legumes in your family's foods--and what grains to use for what.

Hope that helps with some fun ideas--wheat berries are great in a salad or used anyplace you would use ground meats--replacing just a part of the meat is a great way to get those grains in and not really alter the flavors or textures much :)

Enjoy!!
