Wheat berries – crunchy & healthy & tasty! If you don’t like or cannot find wheat berries – use any other grain like couscous, quinoa, rice – whatever. It is all about the peas & mint. I used real feta here but I also made a version with this vegan cheese below & it was just as delicious.
6-Ingredient Wheat Berry Salad with Peas, Mint & Feta (Vegetarian or Vegan)
Serves 4 as a side dish
1 cup uncooked wheat berries (or other grain)
2 cups fresh peas (or frozen)
1/4 lb feta (or vegan cheese) – crumbled
1/4 cup fresh mint – chopped
1/8 cup olive oil
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
Cook the wheat berries or other grain. Add the FRESH peas about 4-5 minutes before the grains are done to soften the peas. If using frozen – add them in the last minute or 2.
Run the wheat berries & peas under cool water to stop their cooking then toss with the other ingredients. Season with S&P.
