From AZ Cookbook
Pretty cool website that has food from "Azerbaijan and Beyond". When daughter #3 came back from Turkey with tales of food, off I went to internet and I found AZ. Since I had also purchased wheat berries, this recipe of Turkish Wheat Berry Salad with Roasted Veg sounded great.
And it was.
Basic concept is pretty simple - Cook Wheat Berries, Roast Veg of your choice. Roast chicken if you like. Add dressing, serve.
Go to the above link for the recipe, but I made a few changes.
For veg I used zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers, sweet potato and butternut squash
I had some cooked chicken
My dressing was equal parts olive oil, fresh lemon juice and balsamic vinegar.
I did not have the mint nor the parsley, but I did have dried basil. So I used that. Tasted great, but I will try it with the fresh mint and parsley this summer when I can grow or buy fresh. Pomegranate syrup I replaced with the balsamic, but I am sure the Pom syrup would be great. This would be an absolutely great summer off the grill meal
