Wheat Berry, Chickpea & Feta Salad
Wheat berries have amazing texture—they practically pop in your mouth like caviar—and each 1/2-cup serving of cooked wheat berries has more than 4 grams of fiber. Since they take up to an hour to get tender, make them in a large batch and freeze whatever you don't use right away in individual servings. (You can do the same thing with any whole grain!) That way, you can easily stir them into soup, season them with citrus and herbs for a pilaf or make them the base of a satisfying grain salad.
To make ahead
Refrigerate cooked wheat berries (Step 1) for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Refrigerate salad for up to 3 days.
