Heirloom tomato, mozzarella and pearled spelt salad

Today's dish is very easy, as it's only a salad. However I tried to make it slightly more filling with a pearled spelt addition and mozzarella balls. Of course tomatoes are an important ingredient here again, like in all my dishes this week, since I'm celebrating The VegHog's Tomato Festival. Have a look at the two previous posts and share your tomato recipe, if you feel like it. 

This one is quite a basic summer salad, but still a little alteration from the normal tomato and mozzarella salad.


6-8 tbsp pearled spelt
1 tsp vegetable stock powder
2 large heirloom tomatoes
½ red onion
50 g rocket
150 g mozzarella balls
Olive oil
Fresh basil


Cook the pearled spelt in water with the added vegetable stock powder until they are done.

Slice the tomatoes and the red onions. Quickly fry the onion slices in olive oil in a pan.

Assemble all the components onto a plate and drizzle olive oil on the top and season with basil, salt and pepper.

That's how simple it is, enjoy!
