Barley Rice and Vegetables

Oh so healthy!!! This is my go-to recipe when I don’t have much time or inclination to cook a full meal. Its robust and packs in oodles of flavour. The Harissa Sauce and Sumac Powder give the dish an Umami flavour. Barley is a much better option when trying to lose weight. It reduces hunger and promotes the feeling of fullness for an extended period. It adds fibre to your meal. The grain is so versatile, inexpensive and can be incorporated in any cuisine you like.  Barley is a great substitute for rice. Enjoy this quick and easy recipe. Have a success filled day!!!

You can also substitute Harissa sauce with chilli powder, the flavour will differ.
