Sprouted Wheat Berry Pilaf

  • 2 cups soft wheat berries, sprouted
  • 3 cups home-made beef, chicken stock or water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried green peppercorns, crushed
  • 1 crushed clove of garlic

Sprout wheat berries according to directions. Place 2 cups sprouted berries in a pot or rice cooker with stock and salt. Bring to a boil and skim. Add thyme, rosemary and peppercorns and bring to a boil, turn down heat and simmer till liquid is almost gone and berries are tender, about 2 hours. Serve with grated cheese, sour cream or lacto fermented vegetable like sauerkraut.

Home-made bone broths that are gelatin rich will help utilize the protein in grains.
