Warm Rosemary, Apple, and Wheatberry Salad

To prepare wheatberries, combine 1 cup wheatberries, a big pinch of salt, and 3 cups of water in a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce to a simmer for about 90 minutes, until the water has absorbed and the wheatberries are cooked to your liking. In a skillet over medium heat, melt the vegan butter and add chopped apples and 1 sprig fresh rosemary. Once the apples have started to cook, sprinkle the brown sugar over top and stir.  Continue stirring until the apples are slightly soft, about 3 minutes. Add the cooked wheatberries into the skillet, combining to coat with the apples and juices. Top with remaining fresh rosemary and serve immediately.
