Einkorn Wheat Berry Breakfast Bowl with Blueberries Recipe
what you'll need
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup water hot
- 4 Tbsp unsalted butter divided
- 2 cups einkorn wheat berries soaked overnight
- salt to taste
- 1 pint blueberries washed
- 2 bananas cut on the diagonal
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- honey to drizzle
let's do it
- Heat water in tea kettle or small pan—have it ready to go.
- Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in wheat berries and sauté for 4–5 minutes, until they change color from pale to dark golden brown. Pour in enough water to cover bottom of the pan, add a pinch of salt, cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Let simmer for 4 minutes.
- Uncover and add blueberries. Cook blueberries 30 seconds to 1 minute to allow them to soften. Transfer mixture to serving bowls.
- Add the remaining 1 Tbsp butter to the pan over medium-high heat along with the brown sugar. Whisk to combine then add sliced bananas. Cook about 1 minute on the first side until a brown crust begins to form. Flip the slices and cook 30 seconds more. Top the serving bowls with bananas, drizzle with honey and enjoy.
