Wheat Berry and Lentil Soup

I love this soup! It’s nutrition and comfort in a bowl.

Wheat berries contain the bran, germ, and endosperm of the wheat kernel, which translates into maximum nutritional payload. There’s lots of fiber and protein packed into these grains, along with a bounty of B Vitamins.
Lentils are packed with fiber, magnesium, and iron. They are good for your heart, help to stabilize blood sugar and provide energy.

Vegetables and greens are also in this soup to make it a complete and nourishing meal.

I like to cook my soups in a crockpot. When doing it this way, you do not need to pre-cook the Wheat Berries or Lentils.

Use organic ingredients as much as possible.

This makes a large pot of soup, so you can freeze it in smaller batches for other meals later.

If you want to cook this on the stove:
Cook the Lentils in the broth and water and cook the Wheat Berries separate.

Drain the cooked Wheat Berries and add everything to the pot with the Lentils including the greens and simmer until the greens are wilted.
