this seasonal soup is a beautiful balance of sweet squash and savory herbs, with a nice chewiness from the wheat berries. had i known how delicious it was going to be, i would have noted my exact measurements! what i can do is give you some rough estimates to help you create a similar tasty soup in your slow cooker.
DELICATA SQUASH & WHEAT BERRY SOUP
1 cup wheat berries, rinsed
1 delicata squash, cubed
2 carrots, sliced into half moons
1 red pepper, diced
3/4 cup dried chick peas (or 1 1/2 cups cooked)
2 garlic cloves, minced
about 4 cups water or vegetable broth
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste
dried oregano and/or fresh thyme
place ingredients in a crock pot and cook on high for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. if using cooked chick peas, stir those in towards the end. since the measurements aren't exact, start with about 3 1/2 cups water or broth and add more as needed. let me know if you have any questions - i'm happy to help!
