#002 Wheat Berries with Charred Onion and Kale

What the heck is a wheat berry? Think of it as the hulled but otherwise WHOLE unmilled wheat kernel. The bran, endosperm, and germ. By contrast, white bread (like the Wonderbread I was raised on) is made from ground up endosperm only.

This recipe came from the interwebs, my primary source of inspiration, knowledge and most importantly, recipes, for a plant-based diet. Find it on bon appétit.com. Relatively easy – only other ingredients are fresh thyme, olive oil, and lemon juice. As I’ve come to learn, you have to plan ahead with whole grains – it takes 30 or more minutes to cook the ‘berries.’
