      1/2   c            Chopped onions
      1/2   c            Chopped sweet green peppers
    1                    Garlic clove -- minced
    1       cn           Tomatoes -- undrained/in chunk
                         16 oz. can
      1/2   ts           Dried oregano
      1/2   ts           Dried basil
    2       c            Water
    5 1/4   oz           Barley -- 3/4 cup
 
   A tasty side dish for almost any entree, this filling
   grain also reheats nicely in the microwave. In a
   medium saucepan over medium heat cook onions, green
   pepper, and garlic until lightly browned. Add small
   amounts of water if necessary to prevent drying. Add
   tomatoes spices and water. Bring to a boil. Stir in
   barley, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 50
   minutes until barley is tender and water is absorbed.
   Stir occasionally while cooking and add more water if
   necessary. Note: the original recipe called to saute
   the 1st three ingredients in olive oil (1T+1t) but I
   chose to eliminate it and eliminate almost 5 gms fat
   per serving.
