Recipe by Lori Ross
One of my favorite summer cookout dishes that everyone loves. Makes 6-8 servings.
1 cup whole wheat berries (or spelt or kamut)
1 tsp salt
3 cups water
1 red and 1 yellow pepper chopped
1 red or white onion (or 5 scallions) chopped
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 spring onions chopped
2 Tbsps of lemon juice
Bring grains and liquid to a boil, lower heat and simmer gently for 50-60 minutes
until just cooked (should be a little chewy). Meanwhile, sauté onions and
peppers in oil until soft. Once grains are cooked, add salt and pepper to taste, squeeze
lemon and stir. Top with onions and peppers. Serve warm or room-temperature.
Greek Berries -- add feta, cucumbers and black olives
Moroccan Berries -- add raisins, nuts, dash of cinnamon and nutmeg and replace
lemon juice with orange juice.
