Chicken fat, vegetable oil, or olive oil
Half of medium Onion chopped
2 cups of wheatberries, soaked overnight
4 cups Chicken stock
1.5 ounces of butter
2 cups of Shiitake mushroom
2 cloves of garlic
A Pinch of salt
1 sprig of thyme
Cream, soy cream, or almond cream
1. Start with a nice medium heat pot with chicken fat and add the onions. Cook the onions very lightly so that they aren't too brown but just to soften them. Make sure you are stirring the onions so that they dont burn.
2. Now add in the 2 cups of wheatberrys and stir and sear them. Dont burn them but toast them. They give a wonderful nutty flavor. Add about 4 cups of stock and turn down the heat and cover it.
3. Take a medium high heated pan and melt some butter. Add in the Shitake mushroom and just sear them dont move them just let them sit there and sear. Lower the heat once the mushrooms have some color and then add the chopped garlic. Make sure the heat is lowered so the garlic doesn't burn. Stir and add salt and 1 sprig of thyme.
4. Take the wheatberries again and add some stock and add the mushrooms and stir together. As your stirring add some cream and more butter as well as little more salt. Now finish with Parmesan cheese.
