Barley and Red Bean Bowl

Sunday, February 10, 2013

From Skinny Bitch: Ultimate Everyday Cookbook, pg. 173

This is supposed to be a side, but I could eat this as a meal too

3C veggie broth
1C uncooked pearly barley
1 (14 oz) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2C chopped yellow pepper
1/2C chopped green pepper
2tbsp (vegan) Worcestershire sauce
1/4C olive oil
1 garlic clove
2tbsp chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste

In a medium bowl, bring broth to a boil. Add barley and stir. Cover tightly and reduce heat to low. Simmer 35-40 minutes, or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed.
In a large bowl, combine beans and bell peppers. In a small bowl, prepare dressing by whisking together the Worcestershire sauce, oil, garlic, and parsley. Add the barley to the bean mixture and mx well. Drizzle with dressing and add salt and pepper to taste.

    That looks really good, do you think Quiona could be substituted for the pearl barley? Thanks for sharing!

    YES! I've been looking for a way to use up some barley in my cupboard, too! This looks delicious.

    Gotta get my head around barley...something I was fed as a kid, & just can't 'do' as an adult. But this sounds good...maybe.
