Instant Pot Wheat Berries–tender, chewy wheat berries cooked in minutes in your pressure cooker. I like to use them in salads, chili or spaghetti sauce.
Instant Pot Wheat Berries
Wheat berries have a sweet, nutty flavor. They are tender and chewy. Their flavor works well in savory dishes as well as sweet breakfast dishes. They hold their shape and texture even after cooking for long hours in the slow cooker. These make them great in soups and chilis. I’ve made them many times in the slow cooker but today I wanted to see how they would fare in the Instant Pot.
You’ll want a ratio of 3 parts water to 1 part wheat. I used hard white wheat because that’s what was in my pantry. I set it to manual for 30 minutes and then did a quick release. This method worked wonderfully and now I can make my favorite wheat berry salad with avocados, peppers, jicama and tomatoes! Yum!
What Instant Pot Did You Use?
For this Instant Pot Wheat Berries recipe I used this Instant Pot IP-LUX60 V3 Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker. It’s 6 quarts, so the same size as most slow cookers. It cost me around $80 on Amazon.
