  1. Begin by cooking the wheat berries in 3 cups of water for 45 minutes.
  2. Drain the water from the cooked wheat berries, and add the broth and 1/4 cup of water to a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, then immediately reduce the heat to a simmer and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Once the 15 minutes is up, lift the lid and add the spinach to wilt. Cover for 5-10 minutes and fluff with a fork.

  4. Meanwhile, as the wheat berries are cooking, add the oil to an already hot pan (cast iron preferred). Add the sweet potato, shallots, and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3-4 minutes stirring very little so the veggies can caramelize.

  5. Add the garlic and continue cooking another 3-4 min or until the sweet potato can be pierced with a fork.

  6. Add the rice to the veggies and season again if necessary. Top with the peanuts or any nuts of your choice
