Einkorn Wheatberry Bowls-Three Ways

If you are a lover of einkorn or even risotto, and do not eat whole einkorn wheat berries on a frequent basis, this article is for you! Eating grains in their whole form is an incredibly natural and nutritious way to get a healthy serving of carbohydrates and fiber, and these nutrients will fuel your body and keep you feeling fuller for longer, while also being low in fat. The great thing about einkorn wheat berries is they have a delicious sweet and nutty flavor and it’s nearly impossible to overcook then, meaning they will retain their customary chew even when reheated. 

Besides the required soaking overnight, these three recipes are as easy as easy could be. We have tested two cooking methods- conventional cooking over the burner in a medium saucepan and cooking a rice cooker. Simply add the ingredients and let them simmer until cooked. Add a jar of drained jovial beans at the end of the cooking cycle for a complete meal.

    I never soak mine. Just cook it in a pot.
    Put the einkorn and water into a pot. Measure 1 cup (200 g) of einkorn berries and 2 cups (470 ml) of water (and we like to add two packets sodium-free chicken bouillon) into a pot on the stove. Bring the einkorn and water to a boil. Cover and simmer the einkorn for 30 to 35 minutes.
