If you have followed my blog you know that I have some days I do a vegetarian meal. I have never really ventured into the vegan world so today I made a quite satisfying and tasty dish without any animal products. For the meal I added some spinach and sautéed zucchini on the side. DH had a slice of bread that was also made without animal products. To top off our meal we had a vegan chocolate cake.
2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion; chopped
1 cup Water
1 cube vegetable bouillon granules
2/3 cup barley; uncooked
2 teaspoon oregano fresh or 1/2 tea. dry
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can (14 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 oz.) sliced water chestnuts
1 pound frozen mixed vegetables
Heat oven to 350°F
In 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium high heat. Cook onion in oil 4-5
minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender.
Heat water in a bullion into boiling water and stir until bouillon is dissolved.
Mix the onion, bouillon mixture and remaining ingredients except the frozen
vegetables. Break up the tomatoes.
Cover and bake about 40 minutes or until bubbly.
Stir in the frozen vegetables. cover and bake 30-40 minutes longer until
barley is tender.
Yield: 4-6 servings
