Broccoli, onion, tomatoes, yellow zucchini, and eggplant, coupled with nutty wheat berries (unprocessed whole kernels of wheat), make a lusty dish. This is an excellent accompaniment to meat or fish; it can also be served as an entree.
This fresh spring salad is loaded with healthy fava beans (a good source of dietary fiber and protein), baby turnips (for vitamin C), and pea shoots (for vitamins A, C, and folic acid). Top with Grilled Arctic Char, if desired.
Wheatberries -- whole, unprocessed wheat kernels -- are available at any health-food store and should be soaked overnight to facilitate cooking the next day. They contain oils that turn rancid quickly. Be sure to refrigerate them in an airtight container.
