What is wheat berry you ask? Wheat berry refers to the entire wheat kernel (except for the hull), composed of the bran, germ, and endosperm. Wheat berries have a tan to reddish brown color and are available as either a hard or soft processed grain. For this recipe I used organic hard wheat berries. If wheat berries are milled, whole-wheat flour is produced. Wheat berries have high protein and fibre content.

Cooking wild rice can be a bit of a daunting task but with a little patients you can enjoy a perfectly cooked bowl every time. Wild rice (also called Canada rice, Indian rice, and water oats) is not directly related to Asian rice but they are close cousins. They are species of grasses and the grain is harvested from them. The grain was historically gathered and eaten in both North America and China. While it is now a delicacy in North America, the grain is eaten less in China. Wild rice grains have a chewy outer sheath with a tender inner grain that has a slightly vegetal taste.
