Absolutely Good Wheaty Berry Patties

Best Blog Tips

If you are not allergic to gluten and to wheat, you owe it to yourself to try these. They are very easy and super tasty and will go well as a sidekick to mashed potatoes, baked yams or anything you might want to pair them with. You can also chop them into pita bread with lettuce, tomatoes and whatever you prefer for a delicious, easy lunch on the go!

1 cup wheat berries
1 carrot, peeled and sliced
1 tomato, seeded and chunked
1 stalk celery, sliced
1/2 cup sweet pepper strips, both red and green
Salt to taste
2 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
2 Tbsp. minced onion or 1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (make your own by toasting bread and pulverizing it in a blender or food processor)
1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 Tbsp. olive oil plus more
3/4 cup water

In a small pot, cook the wheat berries in some water until soft (about 30 minutes). Let them cool. Meanwhile, peel your carrot, chop the tomato in chunks, wash and slice the celery and put in a blender or food processor with some water to form a paste. Scrape into a bowl and add the other ingredients, incorporating them well and adding a little bit of water as needed, making sure you get a soft dough that is not runny or mushy. Drop by large tablespoonfuls into a hot skillet barely "painted' with olive oil and cook until golden brown on both sides.
You can also bake them at 350ยบ F, on a non-stick cookie sheet, watching them carefully and turning them around often until they are done, so that they won't burn.
Pure deliciousness, enjoy!

Thank you +Kim, they are fun and yummy! Children would love them because they are so tasty and kids love things that don't taste "healthy" (you know what I mean, LOL!)
