1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil 85 mL

Before you start

Please note: Depending on the type of spelt berries used, they may require soaking at least 4 h before cooking.

A blender or food processor will be very useful to make the pesto sauce.


  1. Put the spelt berries in a pot, cover with water then bring to a boil. Add a little salt, cover, and simmer until the berries are cooked, about 35 min. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile put all the ingredients in a salad bowl.
  3. Add the cooked spelt then toss to combine. Adjust the seasoning, then serve hot or at room temperature.
