Number of Servings: 6


    Zucchini, 3 cup, diced (2 large)
    Onions, diced, 1 large
    Oregano, ground, 2 tsp
    Black Pepper, .5 tsp
    Canned Diced Tomatoes, 2 cans with juice
    Vegetable Broth, 2 cup
    Barley, pearled, raw, 1 cup
    Green Beans (snap), 3 cup


Combine all ingredients in slow cooker, cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or High for 3 hours. Top each serving with crumbled feta cheese, to taste,

Notes: If you like your zucchini more firm (and will be home) you can add it in during the last hour of cooking. If using frozen green beans you can add them in about half to 3/4 of the way thru the cooking time to keep them a bit more firm. SP only has pearled barley in the tracker but I use whole grain hulled barley. Barley is especially great in the slow cooker because it will hold its texture unlike rice.

I think next time I make this I will add in some chick peas (garbanzo beans) to up the protein factor.

    Very Good
    This came out good, I added the zuchinni and the green beans in the last two hours of cooking. I also added carrots to it but next time I will chop them up alot smaller because they still were not done after 6 hours!! Great with a tablespoon of ff sourcream on top. - 12/19/12
