2 medium Granny Smith apples
2 stalks celery, minced
2 cups cooked wheat berries (see below)
1 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 tsp. sea salt
o Add 1 cup chopped walnuts, cashews, or hazelnuts.
o Substitute chopped dried apricots for cranberries.
o Use spelt berries in place of wheat berries if you’re wheat-intolerant.
1 cup wheat berries
3 cups water
• Remove the core and seeds from the apples and chop into 1/2-inch pieces. If the apples are organic, I like leaving the peel on, but the choice is yours. Place the chopped apples in a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix together well.
• Add the grain to the water, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Presoaking these grains will reduce the cooking time.
