Something rather lovely happens when you soak the chewier whole grains (such as rye or wheat berries) in a pickling brine; the tangy notes make the chew that much more enjoyable.

Serves 8 (serving size: about 1 cup)

2 pounds whole Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons toasted walnut oil
2 teaspoons cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
