Soft Red Wheat Recipes


1 c whole wheat berries

5 c water

3 Tbsp vegetable oil

½ c orange juice

2 Tbsp red wine vinegar

2 tsp ground coriander

½ tsp ground cinnamon

2 Granny Smith apples, cored, and diced

2 Tbsp fresh mint, finely chopped

½ c cashews, toasted, coarsely chopped

1 green onion, minced

1 c dried, sweetened, cranberries feta cheese (optional)


Pick over the wheat berries for any foreign bits, then rinse. Bring wheat berries to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour or more until tender. Drain and cool.

In a small bowl, mix vegetable oil, orange juice, vinegar, coriander, and cinnamon. Set aside. To wheat berries, add apples, mint, shallots, and cranberries. Toss with dressing to coat. Prior to serving, add roasted cashews. Tip: If you make this salad ahead of time, you will need to add more dressing before serving, as some of the ingredients will absorb the liquid.

1/3 cup mashed potatoes

1/2 cup potato water

1 1/2 cup milk

2 eggs, beaten

2 to 4 tbsp. honey or raw sugar

2 tsp. salt

2 to 4 tbsp. oil [olive oil is preferred]

2 yeast cakes

2 tbsp. warm water

6 to 7 cups sifted whole wheat flour


Combine mashed potato, potato water, milk, eggs, honey, salt, and oil. Add yeast cakes softened in 2 tbsp. warm water. Add 2 1/2 cups flour to make a sponge. Let rise 1/2 hour. Add about 3 1/2 cups flour to make a medium stiff dough and knead well. Let rise until double in bulk. Knead again and shape into balls about the size of an egg. Use oil generously in greasing muffin tins. Dip top of roll in oil before setting in muffin tin. Let rise 1 to 1 1/4 hours. Bake for 20 minutes at 400F. Parker House rolls may also be made from this recipe. These rolls are delicious when warmed up the next day.


3 T. yeast

1/2 cup sugar

4 eggs, beaten lightly

3 3/4 cup warm water

4 1/2 tsp. salt

3 T. vegetable oil

2 1/2 cups cinnamon bites (available at health food stores, these are like compacted bits of cinnamon.) 11-12 cups flour, use at least half whole wheat


Combine in mixing bowl 4 cups flour, yeast, and sugar. Add water, eggs, and oil. Beat well to “cake batter” stage. Stir in salt, cinnamon bites, and 7 more cups flour to make bread-dough consistency. Let mixer knead it to the right texture (add up to 1 more cup flour if needed). Place dough in greased bowl, cover, and let rise for 1 hour. Shape dough into 4 loaves. Let rise for another hour or until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes. Slice thick and serve warm with butter, or toast slices in the toaster (be careful, the cinnamon bites can burn your fingers), or make slices into French Toast.
