Persian Wheat Berry Breakfast Pudding

This is an exotic breakfast recipe that uses ancient grains and is spiced deliciously with rose water, anise and cinnamon. It's definitely one to try, plus it's full of protein and fiber! 


1 cup rinsed wheat berries

1/2 cup sugar*

2 cups blanched almonds, broken walnuts, shelled pistachios and pine nuts

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds or cranberries

1 tablespoon ground anise

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon orange flower or rose water

*Note: this recipe uses quite a lot of sugar as written, though that amount can be drastically reduced if desired.  Also, honey or maple syrup can be substituted.
