Black Beans and Barley
40 mins (prep 15, cooking 25)
13 ingredients
4 servings
got a similar recipe in my email, it reads : "Quick-cooking barley replaces rice in this classic Caribbean combo. Barley is rich in soluble fiber and makes a good whole-grain choice because it is digested slowly, leaving you feeling satisfied longer." as a barley lover i had to try it, and add my own ingredients.i used fresh grown peppers ,tomatoes,and a handful of fresh oregano and basil. enjoy!
