Wheat berries are the edible part of the wheat kernel before undergoing any processing. They have a slightly sweet and nutty flavor. These little gems are high in fiber and have been shown to reduce inflammation and boost metabolism. 


 Serves 8 to 10 


  • 8 cups water 
  • 1 cup dry wheat berries 
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 2 cups frozen, shelled edamame, thawed 
  • 1 cup chopped red tomato 
  • ¾ cup finely chopped red onion 
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 
  • Cracked black pepper and kosher salt to taste 


Combine water and wheat berries in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 55 minutes. Place in a fine mesh strainer, run under cold water to cool quickly, drain. Combine the wheat berries with the remaining ingredients in a large bowl.  Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 8 hours in advance. Serve at room temperature.
