    Chef #399146's Note:

    Vegetarian chili recipe that appeared in a 1988 Bon Appetit magazine. Wheat berries add a nice chewy bite. If unavailable, they can be omitted. Serve with Baked Polenta with Cheese and Jalapenos. Instructions are for for food processor from original article, although I just use a knife. Enjoy!
