    Vraklis's Note:

    This recipe comes from the Weight Watchers website but I had to share it here because it's absolutely fabulous. The combination might seem a little strange but it was an instant hit with my family and is one of my favorite dishes. The garlic and thyme blend with the sweet and savory flavors to perfection--you will not believe your mouth! You can serve this with salmon or chicken or do like I do and make it your main course!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 4

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring 3 cups of water and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt to a boil in a medium saucepan; add barley. Cover saucepan and simmer barley until tender, about 30 to 35 minutes; drain.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add squash and cook, stirring often, until it's starting to soften--about five minutes. Add the onion and red pepper and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Stir in apple, garlic, thyme, black pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook, stirring, until apple is almost tender, about 2 minutes; stir in broth, scraping bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon to loosen any browned bits. Stir in cooked barley; toss over low heat to mix and coat. Remove from heat and serve. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
    4. 4
      *To make this vegetarian, use vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth.

      Please note that Food.com is not a WW site, and we cannot calculate the points for you; this is something you need to do with the tools that WW provided for you. WW also changes their point system every couple of years, so you'll need to use the current tools.<br/><br/>This is a nice combination of healthful foods for a cold-weather meal with a pork roast or chicken. With the right side dishes and some beans or nuts, it can be turned into a filling vegan main dish (use vegetable broth instead of chicken, of course). I did find it to be a bit bland, so I recommend seasoning liberally and using some nice tart apples.

      I really liked this. I used a little less salt & it tasted great. I used C&W frozen squash - added it right after the onions & peppers started to soften.

      I love this recipe. I made a couple of changes however. When I was sauteing the squash I added a chopped up apple chicken sausage. And at the last I added some dried cranberry. I know this changes the calories...but I didn't want it to be meatless...This combo was awesome !!
