Cold Wheat Berry Soup (Soğuk Buğday Çorbası)

Although this dish is called soup, it might be served as an appetizer or a side dish. However it’s served, it’s a great refreshing and healthy dish for hot and humid summer days.

wheat berries
dried-mint flakes or finely chopped fresh mint
oregano leaves
red pepper flakes
olive oil

-Boil wheat berries with a good amount of water until cooked. (You can cook more than you need for the day and keep the rest in the refrigerator for at least a week)
-Take as much as you need in a big bowl and add yogurt on top enough to cover the berries when mixed. (We always add a little more than necessary to cover berries)
-If you like a thick bowl of soup, do not add water, but if you like it thinner add some water. With this soup, everything is up to you; you can add more or less of everything.
-Sprinkle mint, oregano, pepper flakes, and salt on top.
-Add 1 or 2 tbsp of olive oil.
-Mix and serve cold.
