Asparagus and Kamut® Salad


Kamut and Asparagus Salad close up1 cup GPF Kamut® Khorasan Wheat
¼ cup diced red onion
¼ cup finely chopped sundried tomatoes (not oil packed)
1 cup roasted asparagus
½ cup Italian Vinaigrette
½ cup pesto
¾ cup feta cheese

  •  Presoaking Kamut® is optional but recommended.  For best results soak overnight. Drain off soaking water. Bring 3 cups water to boil; add soaked grain. Cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes (note: if grains were not soaked, please allow 45-60 minutes), or until tender and plump. Drain off any excess water.  Let cool.
  • To roast asparagus: place asparagus spears on cookie sheet, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, roast in oven at 400⁰ Fahrenheit for 10 minutes, cool, then cut into small pieces.
  • Mix Kamut®, onion, tomatoes, and asparagus together in a large bowl.
  • Add Italian Vinaigrette and pesto and mix well.
  • Add feta cheese before serving and mix well.
  • Enjoy!

Best Served at room temperature.  Serves 4 to 6.
*Spelt or wheat berries are also options for this salad – or a combination!
