Cracked Wheat

This recipe serves: 
Ingredients
1 cup cracked wheat
2 1/2 cups water
2 tablespoons chopped, fresh parsley
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
Cooking Instructions
1. In a dry skillet (with at least 2" sides) over medium heat, toast the wheat, stirring constantly. After a few minutes it will give off a nutty aroma; stir in 2 1/2 cups boiling water and a dash of salt.

2. Lower the heat and simmer, covered, until the wheat is tender, about 15 minutes.

3. Place a cloth under the lid and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in the olive oil and parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serving Size: about 3/4 cup
