Spelt berries are great for throwing into salads and soups or making a hearty side dish with some fresh herbs and vegetables, but my favorite is eating them for breakfast! Once they are cooked you can have them cold or hot with a little almond milk, cinnamon, and loads of fresh fruit.
I suggest a breakfast that will ensure you are fueled up and properly nourished so you can take on your day with full force. A combination of whole grains and fresh fruits gives you lasting energy with a good dose of fiber and plenty of micronutrients. Just one cup of dry spelt will make enough for at least three days of breakfast!
spelt berry breakfast bowls
- 1 cup dry spelt
- 3 cups water
- pinch of salt
- fresh fruit of your choice
- almond milk
- maple syrup if you need a little sweetener
- sprinkle of nuts or seeds
Soaking the spelt berries overnight will cut down the cooking time but is not necessary. If you do soak them, drain and rinse before cooking. Add the 3 cups water and cook in a saucepan over medium heat for 40 minutes (may take up to 60 if not soaked). Drain excess water and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
