Ingredients

Salad:

  • 2 cups spelt berries
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 medium oranges
  • 2/3 cup cranberries (naturally sweetened if you can find those)
  • 1 batch of vegan feta (homemade to your favorite recipe — here’s a good one! — or store bought)
  • 5-6 scallions
  • Optional: handful of almonds or sunflower seeds for added crunch

Dressing:

  • 1/2 cup of the cooked spelt berries
  • Juice of one medium orange
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic

Preparation

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a medium pot, add the salt and spelt berries.
  2. Lower the heat a bit and simmer for 50-60 minutes, until the spelt softens.
  3. Drain and set aside to cool.
  4. Transfer ½ cup of the cooked spelt berries to a blender along with the rest of dressing ingredients and blend until smooth.
  5. Peel and segment the orange and finely chop the scallions.
  6. Mix into the cooked spelt berries along with the rest of the ingredients and the dressing.
  7. Serve right away or chill.

Notes

This salad keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days and becomes even tastier as the flavors blend.
