Was bloody lovely!

What do you think the 'wheat' was? Pearlised spelt?

AM having a go at guessing what was in it and making it!

Looks like barley to me.

A quick Google brought this up on BBC food

Or maybe buckwheat

It's probably exactly what it says. Here in Sweden in called mathavre and is grains of wheat that you cook like any other grain.

Thanks, I was looking at the bulgur wheat in-store, and it looked like big grains of sand, whereas this looks like this picture.

It's ordinary wheat grains not bulgur wheat. I believe it's sometimes sold as 'wheat berries' in the UK.

I'm guessing pearled spelt!

Hope so as that's what I've got cooking now!

Ocado do wheatberry mixed with edeme beans. Its gorgeous

It's definitely wheat berries. I couldn't figure out what they were either - since they look like barley, but don't taste like barley - so I asked the chefs behind the counter. Wheat berries come in 'hard' red wheat berries and 'soft' white wheat berries. Tesco's sell them.

Wheat berries are often called Ebly in the UK. Spelt will probably be nicer though.

I love wheat berries!

Try the ikea veggie balls next time you go, they are delish.

I love the IKEA dish. I'm going to try it at home.

If you can't get wheatberries, Faro is very similar and delicious (more nutty flavour than barley)
