Barley and Cannellini Bean Stew

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dicentra

This is a great stew for cold winter nights! Serve with warm whole grain rolls or grilled cheese sandwiches. Caution: it does make a lot, but freezes well. It can be reheated directly from the freezer in the microwave. Just heat for 2 minutes at a time, stirring between each until it is as hot as you'd like it.

This was really wonderful! It was very hearty and filling and we didn't miss the meat at all. It is really nice to find recipes that are good for you, satisfying and filling.
