Step 1: Preparing Your Mise en Place

Preparing Your Mise en Place
  • 3 cups cooked wheat berries
  • 1 cup non-dairy yogurt
  • 1/4 cup quality maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp grapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter
  • 2 firm pears (or apples)
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 cup mixed dried fruit of choice


Cook the grains by following the instructions in the lesson on How to Cook Grains.

If you have previously cooked the grains, reheat them with steam prior to assembling the dish. Refer to the lesson for more information.

Gather the yogurt, maple syrup, toasted nuts and dried fruit of choice. We used dried blueberries, raisins and apples. Set aside.

To prepare the pears (or apples), first wash and then peel them (if desired). Cut the fruit into small chunks. Heat a fry pan over medium-high heat and add the oil and butter, followed by the fruit. Saute the fruit until softened through, about 5 minutes. Near the end, add the dried fruit and toss to combine.

Step 2: Assembling the Dish

Assembling the Dish


Once the grains are warmed through, place them into a bowl. Top with a dollop of yogurt, the cooked fruit, toasted nuts and maple syrup as desired. Serve warm.

    I am an organic farmer trying to eat healthy and this is so fantastic. Texture, flavor and visual appeal are over the top. I can see many ways to change this up based on what you have on hand. My DH usually eats just a piece of toast and an egg every day said this beat his usual and from him that was high praise. While I never buy processed food and I grow small grains I have only used the grains for flour. I am very excited about all of Rouxbe and currently in love with the cooking grains section. I am also crazy about the breakfast section right now. Thanks Rouxbe!
