Vegetarian Comfort Food for the Crockpot. My vegetarian friend loved it and so did DH and I.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all but onions, making sure the barley and lentils are well mixed. They will form the "body" of the dish and will pretty much disappear. I put it in the crock pot and cook overnight on low. You could also do it on high for about 3 hours or so.
  2. Before serving, slice onions and sauté in butter or oil on medium low heat til caramelized. Put beans in individual bowls and serve with a dollop of plain yogurt and the onions on top.
  3. I served this with cranberry chutney and naan bread on the side. Also good with rice.
  4. (You can use any kind of beans and you could also add corn, spinach, zucchini -- anything! The spice amounts are moderate and I usually double the turmeric and pepper flakes for more pizazz If I have any fresh herbs on hand, I throw them in too).
