  • Complexity: Easy

Use only clean, untreated wheat. By soaking the wheat overnight, cooking time is cut in half.

  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 3 green onions, sliced- tops and all
  • 1 small yellow pepper, seeded and diced
  • 20 stuffed olives, sliced
  • 2 6 ounce jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained (reserve marinade)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, light
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder


  1. Heat chicken broth and add whole wheat. Simmer ½ hour; refrigerate mixture overnight.
  2. In the morning, simmer wheat until soft, approximately ½ to 1 hour; drain excess liquid. Add green onions, pepper, olives and drained artichokes to wheat berries. Blend mayonnaise and curry powder into ¼ cup reserved artichoke marinade until smooth. Add to wheat mixture and mix thoroughly. Chill several hours before serving or overnight.
