Wheat berries are a delicious and nutty add-in or main ingredient for nearly any meal. Use them alone as a side dish or in a recipe such as my recipe for Wheatberry Waldorf Salad published here on this site.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add water and wheat berries; stir once. Close and lock the lid. Select Manual pressure according to manufacturer's instructions and set timer for 27 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Drain wheat berries and mix in salt.

Cook's Note:

Place a thin hand towel over the Instant Pot(R) vent before flicking it open. I like setting my Instant Pot(R) on a cool stove with the overhead vent on to pull the steam out of the house.
