Yummy recipe! You might want to use medium barley instead of quick cooking. It's healthier, and it holds its shape/texture better than the quick variety. It takes about 40 minutes to cook instead of 10.

i make a similar recipe using quinoa instead of barley (also omitting the oil), and another variant is with black beans, cilantro and lime instead of chickpeas, parsley and lemon!

So I am very new to the vegan lifestyle. This is my second week. I also really dislike cooking, but I'm going to have to get over that with my new decision to go vegan. Here is a recipe that tasted great and most of all...was easy :-)

Chickpea and Barley Salad
Prep: 12 min
Cook: 15 min
Serves 4

Ingredients
1 1/3 C. Reduced Sodium Vegetable Broth
2/3 C. Quick Cooking Barley
1 (15 1/2 oz) Can Chickpeas (rinsed & drained)
1 Yellow Bell Pepper
1 C. Grape Tomatoes, halved
2/3 C. Chopped Red Onion
1/2 C. chopped Flat-Leaf Parsley (I didn't have parsley so I used a little oregano)
2 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
4 tsp. Olive Oil (I left this out)
1/4 tsp. Black Pepper

Bring the broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the barley. Reduce the heat and simmer, cover until barley is softened, 10-12 min. Remove from the heat and let stand 5 min. Transfer to a large bowl.

Add the chickpeas, bell pepper, tomatoes, onion, parsley, lemon juice, oil and pepper; toss to combine. Serve on bed of lettuce if desired.

This recipe came from a Weight Watcher Cookbook. I sold it in a garage sale but kept a photocopy of this recipe, so I'm not sure of the title. But the credit goes to them :-)
