Kutia (Ukrainian Wheat Berry Pudding)
Kutia is only made for Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner when there will be 12 meatless dishes, symbolizing the twelve apostles. When the first star appears, the meal begins with kutia, cooked wheat with honey and poppy seeds. Kutia represents peace, prosperity, and good health.
When I was young my Baba would add the leftover wheat to warm milk for my breakfast. It's a great change from oatmeal.
