Broccoli and Wheat Berry Salad

1 cup of uncooked wheat berries (or spelt)
1 cup broccoli florets
1 tablespoon capers

Dressing
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese + more to garnish

Serves 2
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Cook wheat berries in 3 cups of slightly salted water until soft and chewy, about 45 minutes. Drain, rinse and let cool.

Steam the broccoli florets for about 3-5 minutes. Put them immediately into ice cold water, to stop the cooking process. This way, they will retain their bright green color. Drain.

In a little bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar and Parmesan cheese for the dressing.

In big bowl, combine wheat berries, broccoli and capers. Pour over the dressing and mix gently. Sprinkle grated Parmesan on top to garnish. To be eaten cold or at room temperature.
