Step 1Wrap beets with foil in 1 package and wrap turnips with foil in another package. Roast both in 400° F (200° C) oven for about 1 hour or until tender when pierced with a knife. Let cool slightly and peel skin from both beets and turnips. Cut into bite size pieces.
Step 2Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling water, cook wheatberries for about 35 minutes or until tender but still chewy. Add green beans and cook for 5 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
Step 3In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, oil, honey, ginger, hot pepper sauce and pepper. Toss with wheatberry mixture, beets and turnips to coat. Serve warm.
When serving this up as a main option be sure to stir in 1 can (19 oz/540 mL) no salt added lentils or chickpeas with the mixture to serve.
For a milder version, simply reduce the hot pepper sauce.
