Wheat Berries with Beets and Walnuts

Simple ingredients make a satisfying dish in this easy recipe. Pre-roast the beets and boil the wheat berries earlier in the week for a really quick meal. Add the beet greens if you like, or save them for another dish. Pasta works well in place of the wheat berries, if you prefer.


  • 1 bunch beets, roasted, peeled and diced
  • 1 large handful parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 handful walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bunch green onions or baby leeks, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cooked wheat berries
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Salt to taste


Mix together all ingredients, seasoning to taste. Let sit for at least 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Serve warm, or as a cold salad. Garnish with whole parsley leaves.
