    Wheat berries are the entire wheat kernel, and can be found in most grocery stores. They have a chewy texture and somewhat nutty, earthy flavor when cooked.

    Wheat berries are packed with protein, fiber, iron, vitamin E, and magnesium. Black beans and edamame beans (whole soy beans) are also a great source of protein and fiber. Try this recipe warm or cold for a tasty, nutritious meal or a summertime snack.
