Recipe Details:
Barley with vegetables is a very filling and diabetic-friendly side dish that can complement virtually any main course and make your dinner complete.


Ingredients:
  • Barley – 2 cups
  • Medium onion (cut into cubes) – 1
  • Medium carrots (grate on a coarse grater) – 2
  • Canned sweet peas – 12 Oz
  • Vegetable oil – 2-3 tbsp.
  • Curry – 2 pinches
  • Other spices of your choice – to taste
  • Salt and ground black pepper – to taste
    Recipe Directions:
    Step 1
    Wash and dry the barley.
    Step 2
    Heat some vegetable oil on a frying pan. Put in carrots and onions and simmer over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. After that, put the stewed vegetables in a Dutch oven.
    Step 3
    Add a can of sweet peas with liquid to the Dutch oven with stewed vegetables. Season with salt, pepper and spices, then mix thoroughly.
    Step 4
    Preheat a frying pan. Put the barley on a dry frying pan and fry over medium heat for about 7 minutes (until lightly nutty smell), stirring occasionally.
    Step 5
    Put the barley into the Dutch oven. Pour boiling water over the content of the Dutch oven, so that the content gets covered with water by about 1.5 inch.
    Step 6
    Bring the water in the Dutch oven to boil over high heat. Reduce heat and cover the Dutch oven loosely with a lid. Cook the barley with vegetables for about 1 hour (until the barley is cooked). Stir when necessary and add a little water. If there was a lot of liquid, take off the lid and evaporate excess water over high heat.
    Step 7
    Once the barley is ready, serve and enjoy!
