Slice tomatoes in half. Add to a bowl with the cooked and cooled spelt, crumbled feta cheese, and sliced basil.

Tips from the author
Ever cooked with spelt?
The berries are cooked much like rice, when prepared, they can be added to salads, or in the place of rice. The chewy texture and nutty flavour is a nice addition to many salad dishes!
