The Beauty of Wheat Pearls May 28, 2010

Wheat grain and black-eyed beans make good bed fellows.

I know we do eat enough wheat with our Sandwich lunch diet in the UK. And most of the bread consumed is made of wheat and rarely includes other grains like rye, spelt, oats or barley. But eating whole wheat grain is a very different experience. I find cooked wheat grain or pearl barley added to lentils or vegetarian mince, for a Vegetarian Moussaka or Chilli for example) gives a crispy plumpness which simulates a meaty texture (something I miss at times in my vegetarian diet).

Anyway, we have seen some sunshine in Manchester (this city looks beautiful now that summer is approaching) and it is time to serve hearty  and balanced salads for dinner, hence the grain and the beans. The following was one of two salads which comprised our dinner yesterday.

To read the recipe and to get a glimpse of wonderful Manchester go to the Cooking page The Beauty of Wheat Pearls.
