Cooked Wheat Berries
Contrary to popular belief, wheat berries do not require an overnight soak before cooking. Simply boil them for 1 hour to soften the kernels, which will produce their characteristically chewy texture.
Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
