This fried spelt dish is a simple and hearty recipe that is both healthy and satisfying. An ideal dish that also works as a part of a fasting cure according to Hildegard of Bingen. Those who like it a little more grainy can use the pre-cooked dark grains. As an alternative, the dark grains are chopped prior to roasting.
