Here's a nutritious side dish that goes well with any grilled food. Look for wheat berries (unprocessed wheat kernels) in supermarkets and health food stores.

Ingredients: 

4 cups water
½ cup dry wheat berries
1 cup cooked black beans (about half of a 15 ounce can, rinsed and drained)
1 cup frozen, shelled edamame, thawed
1 cup chopped tomato
½ cup finely chopped red onion
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions: 

Combine the water and wheat berries in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 55 minutes or until the wheat berries are just tender. Drain well in a fine mesh strainer and combine with the remaining ingredients in a medium bowl. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 8 hours in advance.
