Turned out very tasty. I used strained tomatoes, 4 cups of broth, and added a large carrot and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. My green beans were frozen. Upped the seasoning to 2 T of Italian seasoning and added 1T of Balsamic vinegar before serving. I add hot sauce to my serving since I like it spicier than my hubby. I was concerned the wheat berries would not soften without presoak, but they were perfect.
