There’s something so comforting about a veggie, bean, and barley meal during the fall time. The mix of warm foods, beans, and a hearty grain like barley, makes this an amazing and delicious comfort meal. Not to mention you can make in one pot and takes under one hour to make.
Main Ingredients Needed for Veggie, Bean, and Barley Recipe
You will need some cooked barley, navy beans (or any bean of choice), vegan veggie ground meat (I use Yves veggie ground – optional to add this in, but it’s a great vegan protein boost!) and a mixture of all your favourite veggies! I love using a mix of fresh and frozen. I used frozen peas and carrots as well as some frozen spinach nuggets (you can use fresh!) and some fresh kale. This recipe would also be delicious with some edamame, bell peppers, or any other veggie you love! This barley recipe is really so customizable with any bean or vegetable you love, and it’s all made in one pot!
If you’re like me and have always found trouble figuring out what to do with barley, I hope you try out this recipe and enjoy it! Simple, easy, and delicious meals that are packed with nutrients don’t have to be complicated, and that’s why I am sharing this with you all! This barley recipe can stay in the fridge for up to one week and makes a very large quantity. It’s great to make as a meal prep recipe so you can reheat it and eat it all week long.
