Recipe

Here’s a healthy, hearty way that’s great for getting off to school on a cold morning. Cook the wheat berries the night before so it all comes together on the go.

Ingredients

  • ½
 cup 
greek 
yogurt
  • 1
 teaspoon 
real
 maple
 syrup

  • 1
 cup
 cooked
 wheat
 berries

  • 1
 teaspoon 
butter
 or 
1 
teaspoon 
olive 
oil

  • 1
 pear, 
cored 
and
 sliced
 into
 ¼” 
pieces

  • ¼
 cup
 pecans
 or
 other 
nuts

  • 2 
teaspoon 
cranberries


Directions

    1. First, mix the yogurt and maple together and set aside.
    2. Melt butter in a 9″ sauté pan or skillet and as soon as it’s melted add in the sliced pears. Sauté them on med/high heat for about 2 minutes on each side or until they get golden delicious on the edges. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.
    3. Next, add the pecans into the pan to toast them. After a few minutes you can kill the heat and throw in the cranberries. The residual heat from the pan will be enough to wilt the berries. Once they get soft, I throw the pear slices and wheat berries back into the pan if I’m serving the dish warm. If I’m going for cold though, I put the nuts and berries (hehe) back into the bowl with the maple yogurt. Mix together and serve.
    4. This is a single serving. Adjust accordingly if you’re serving the masses.
    5. Spoon into a serving bowl and serve.

Reminder: The ingredients in a recipe determine if it should be eaten every day, some days, or on special occasions. It's up to you and you doctor to determine what can be part of a healthy diet for you and any special needs you may have.

Move Over, Kale Chips! Kale Buds Are Here

High Tunnel farming caught my eye because its extended growing season adds to the amount of local produce we get. While farm manager Aviva Asher was tidying up the winter crop to make way for spring, I discovered another benefit of local growing: use what you’ve got.
