Delicious, and endlessly variable. Do yourself a favor and use greek yogurt.

Recipe Ingredients for Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

1 cup yogurt
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of butter
2 firm pears, cored and chopped into 1/4-inch THIN bite-sized slices
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
3 cups cooked wheat berries
1/2 cup toasted pecans
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Recipe Directions for Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl

  1. Whisk the yogurt and maple syrup together and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet over medium-hight heat, sauté the pear slices in the olive oil and butter for about five minute, or until they get a bit golden. Keep an eye on them though, because they can burn in a flash. Toward the very end, stir in the cranberries and cook for another minute or so - just until the cranberries soften up a bit and a few of them begin to split open. Add the wheat berries to the skillet and toss gently.

  3. Turn out onto a platter, or serve in individual bowls ladled with a generous amount of the maple yogurt, and sprinkled with plenty of pecans and dried fruit. For those of you who prefer a bit more sweetness, serve with more maple syrup on the side.

  4. *To cook wheat berries: Combine 2 cups wheat berries, 6 cups water, and 2 teaspoons salt in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, covered, until plump and chewy (and a few of the berries split open), about an hour or so. The berries will stay al dente, and the only way to be sure they're done is to taste a few. Drain and set aside.
