I recently was given a 2lb bag of wheat berries and oat berries. Do I cook them similar to rice or what is the best way?


I have to admit...I had no idea what wheat berries were until I googled them.  /img/vbsmilies/smilies/blushing.gif

According to this article, you should soak wheat berries overnight.  Outside of that and cooking them for longer, the cooking methods appear to be pretty similar to rice.

Here are two other articles I found on how to cook wheat berries:And now I'm off to google oat berries....

Can't wait to hear what you think of them after you cook them up!

I used to cook the wheat berries in simmering salted water until tender, then drain.
Meanwhile in a seperate pan would cook mirepoix in butter until tender, add fresh herbs, s&p, then mix with the wheat.
Served it with duck, chicken, squab.
Not an item you see at every restaurant so it was usually met with pleasant surprise.
