1 c. cooked barley
1 c. vegetable broth (or 3, I did not have enough!)
1 vegetable bullion + 2 c. distilled water
* Chop all veggies about the same size!
1 c. celery chopped
1/2 medium onion
1 c. carrots chopped
1 c. chopped and slightly pealed sweet potato
1/4 c. green peas
1/2 c. kale chopped
1/2 c. spinach chopped
1 can drained and rinsed chick peas
Prep veggies (clean and chop)
Add broth, bullion, water, and celery, onion, carrot, and sweet potato. Saute for about 10-15 minutes.
If veggies are frozen add them (in my case, peas and corn), and chick peas.
Add spinach and kale, simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Try not to let veggies get mushy :)
About 8 appetizer servings: 1 c. per serving
Number of Servings: 8
