Wheat Berries aka Wheat Kernels


I love wheat berries. I'm am an Armenian/American, and we use them for a special ceremony when a baby cuts his/her first tooth. It's not a religious ceremony...just a fun tradition called Hadeeg. but i digress:

I eat them almost daily as cold cereal. I cook up a pound at a time til they are nice and soft and plump.....drain and rinse, and add cinnamon, a little sugar, raisins, and sesame seeds (some people add chopped nuts or coconut). I keep them closed in a container. in the morning I eat a bowl with soy milk...or just eat as a snack.

As a salad:

You can add about a cup or berries to the typical armenian salad: chopped tomatoes, cucumbers, green onion, parsley, and a few springs of chopped fresh mint. Dress with olive oil, vinegar and a squeeze of fresh lemon, salt and pepper. For extra crunch you can add chopped celery or green pepper. And some people like to add feta cheese. I like the taste of the wheat berries, and sometimes feta can overpower all the tastes...so I like mine without.


How do you make wheat berries? I'd be interested to hear.

I'm new to this vegetarian thing and I was wondering if wheat berries are the same as burgel? The salad recipe sounds the same. Also do you refrigerate it after you cook it? Any info would be apreciated!!!!

hi heidi,

wheat berries are the whole form of bulghur wheat. if you're making taboule salad, then you use the medium grind wheat.

you can make a really good bulghur grain pilav. Use the coarse grind wheat. If you buy at a middle eastern market, you'll see there are 4 different coarsenesses. Use the coarsest for the grain dish.

use a few tablespoons of olive oil to brown a chopped onion til it's kind of clearish/browned. on a cookie sheet in your oven, brown 1 cup of vermicelli noodle broken up (that's the thin, angel hairish noodle that you find all coiled up....so you can use angel hair pasta if you can't find the vermicelli.) You can opt to brown it in margarine on stovetop too....the oven browning saves you calories.

add the onion/oil and pasta to a 2 qt. saucepan. Add 2 cups of coarse bulghur wheat, and 1.5 packets of Lipton onion soup mix (or any other vegetable broth you have). 6 cups of water. cover, cook over medium heat. don't stir until the water is absorbed.

you can also use chicken broth on this, but you said you were new to vegetarianism.....so there you go.

Hope you like it.
