Lately, I’ve been obsessed with wheatberries. Ever since I found the miracle of a pressure cooker, I can make whatever grains I like without watching the stove 24/7. Now, I can use raw beans instead of canned beans, whole grains instead of instant kinds and make fresh congee (rice porridge)! I love to add wheatberries into my steel-cut oatmeal. I love the nuttiness and the bite to them. I like to avoid a creamy oatmeal and prefer a chewier one. Yes, I like to chew my meal, so no mushy food for me. 🙂 Definitely give wheatberries a try. They keep the oatmeal interesting and you can throw some in your salad, chili, or yogurt to round out your basic food groups!
