8 servings

 

Ingredients:

1 cup wheat berries

2 medium onions, chopped

1/2 cup each: chopped celery, sliced carrots

1 teaspoon dried savory leaves

3 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth

Saute onions, celery, carrots, garlic, and savory in lightly greased large saucepan until onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth and potatoes and heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in wheat berries and lentils, cook until hot, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
