barley, beans and broccoli for one

.5 cup pearl barley
1 cup water
a little olive oil
1/2 onion, coarsley chopped
1/2 cups cooked white beans (drained)
sea salt
1 cup broccoli, roughly chopped
a little cheese (vegan cheese is good here)
1/2 cup veggie broth
a pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tsp each of garlic powder and onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

Bring the water to a boil in a large sauce pan. Add the barley and a pinch of salt, return to a boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for about 45 minutes, or until the barley is tender.

While the barley is cooking, saute the onions in a medium skillet for about 5 minutes, or until soft.

Add the white beans, and heat through. Set aside.

When the barley is tender, stir in the broccoli and simmer 5 minutes. Combine with white beans with green onion. Stir and add sea salt to taste.  Stir in grated cheese until melted and serve.  (good garnished with chopped green onion)

This made two big bowls and was so good, my daughter ditched her pizza to steal some of mine. 

Btw, Home to 4 kiddos is hosting a GIVEAWAY.  Be sure to drop by and check it out.

Sounds really good! I love these kinds of recipes that you can just make for yourself if you want them. :-) Thanks so much for not only linking up with "Try a New Recipe Tuesday," but for sharing about my giveaway, as well! I can't wait to see what you share this week. :-)
