Wheatberry Heaven

It’s official; I am obsessed with blended grains now. I love the pudding-like consistency.
Today I finally was able to try blended wheatberries as a stand-in for oatmeal, and OH MY GOODNESS, were they ever good! The creamy goodness was just so overwhelming that I had to pinch myself to make sure I was really experiencing such deliciousness (No, don’t worry; I didn’t really pinch myself). I know I’m acting a little crazy; after all, it’s just a food. But hey, you can’t judge me unless you try it– and you ALL should try it!


Wheatberry Heaven

Method:
1. Cook 1/4c dried wheatberries at least until they pop (in other words, until they break apart so you can see the white/inside part).

2. Drain the wheatberries, but either leave a little extra liquid OR add some non-dairy milk or some juice. At this point, you can also choose to add some other “oatmeal” mix-ins (or you can add them later if you don’t want them pulverized). I left some of the cooking liquid, and I added a little salt and some melted banana to mine, which yielded a gooey caramelized result.

3. Get out your hand-blender, or put the wheatberries in a food processor and mix until smooth. The longer you whip it, the creamier it gets.

4. Add any other oatmeal mix-ins you want. Eat hot or cold. Enjoy every creamy bite.

Heaven in a bowl.

All right, I will stop bombarding you with all my “blended grains” posts. I think I’ve beaten the topic to death (no pun intended).

What should I post tomorrow? Perhaps some fondant-decorated cake pictures are in order?

    I love the wheatberries myself Special K! You know, when I cook mine, they don’t have a white part – they sort of explode, but it’s all brown… maybe they’re different here? Either way, wheatberries in my breakfast make me a happyfish!

    Cool, thanks!

    Yeah, me 2! It’s not too often I find another female vegan so into hockey. 🙂

    I’ll have to give the wheatberries a try.

    Now you’ve got me on the blended bandwagon–I had blended barley for breakfast (try saying THAT five times)–and boy, was it delicious! What a great way to get cooked whole grains into your system! 🙂

    that sounds so good! i still need to try wheatberries. too bad anything that goes in a blender always sounds way too intimidating for me. I think it’s the whole clean up process!

    happy friday CCV!

    Yum! I love the looks of the blended wheatberries – best one yet! Oh, and love the pun – even if it was unintentional ;o)

    I’m excited to see some fondant!!

    Katie, you are adorable. I am the same way with some food that I discover and love. You are not alone! 🙂

    I have yet to try wheatberries, but I look forward to experimenting with them for breakfast, and blended! They look incredibly creamy in the picture.

    About the maple syrup, it is a must in oats! Even with plain cinnamon it is simply love 🙂

    Quite a while ago I started blending porridges too and I love it. How long do you need to cook the wheatberries before they pop (approximately, I’m just not good in waiting for my breakfast, so I need to know if I should prepare something in advance…)
