Note: This recipe was developed using soft wheatberries with the bran left on. Other types of wheatberries may be used, but the yields and cooking times will vary. For example, the white wheatberries shown in the illustration on page 619 cook in less than 30 minutes and yield 3 times their dry weight (about 4!2 lb/2.25 kg for this recipe). When using a new type of product, test cooking time and yield with a small quantity before adapting it to production.
2. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan. Add the pecans and diced poblano peppers. Sauté about 1 minute.
3. Add the cooked wheatberries. Toss over heat until the mixture is hot. Season to taste.
