This is a twist on the old pasta and steak dinner. Instead of refined pasta and meat, though, there is wholesome wholegrain barley and a delicious vegetarian burger. (Don't roll those eyes, if you cook them the right way they are crispy and delicious!) I use Mother's brand quick cooking barley, Muir Glen Organic brand Italian Herb Pasta Sauce, and Boca Burgers

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Boil water and add barley, boil until all water is absorbed. This is like cooking rice.
  2. Heat oil in a wide pan and sauté onions until golden; stir into barley.
  3. Heat sauce in a small pan.
  4. Brown burgers over high heat until crispy.
  5. Plate one cup of barley with one burger and cover with one cup of sauce.
