  • I didn't have any canned beans, so I used 1/2 cup dry red kidney beans and 1/2 cup dry great northern beans. I put in 6 cups of water with the beans and wheatberries, boiled them, and then simmered for 2 hours. I also used 16 oz tomato sauce. This was delicious and the servings were very generous! - 1/17/11
