- Cooking Time:
- Preparation Time:
- 2 cups wheat berries
- salt, to taste
- 2 teaspoons olive oil or unsalted butter
- 4 cups liquid (water or broth or a combination of both)
- Place all ingredients into the pressure cooker. Seal it and bring it up to temperature over high heat. Lower the heat a bit and cook for 40 minutes. Turn off the heat and by the time the pressure has released the wheat berries should be ready.
- I usually start this a few hours in advance of when I'd like to eat them as it does take awhile. I've read they freeze well. In this case I served them plain but sometimes I add nuts or dried fruit to make more of a pilaf.
NotesI can't remember what caused me to try these but we thought they made a great alternative to brown rice. If you haven't got a pressure cooker you can still make them. They'd need to soak overnight and then cook for a few hours, just as you would do beans.
