Grain of the day, barley! I made this recipe up simply because I had these things in my refrigerator and I wanted to use them up!!
Lemon Garlic Broccoli and Barley Salad with Green Lentils and Pine Nuts
Cook barley and lentils as directed, very simple and similar to just cooking a pot of rice. Set aside.
Note : I did soak my barley and lentils in water overnight. This extra step allows for easier digestion and reduce gas :-) You can always get cooked lentils as well in the store, Trader Joe's has a good variety in a box.
Roast broccoli, purple cabbage, garlic, purple onions, (lots of antioxidants here!) with a drizzle of olive oil, sea salt, roasted red pepper flake and juice of one lemon. Roast for about 20 minutes at 375 or until lightly browned, don't overcook!
I tossed them all together, and added a little more lemon, olive oil, sea salt and crushed red pepper to taste. All my recipes are simply guidelines, taste as you go along and make sure it is suitable for you! Enjoy :-)
