Tomato Stuffed with Barley & Mixed Vegetables

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

Last week, I was craving some healthy food but wanted to try something different. That's when I came up with this idea in my head and tried to recreated, results were fantastic and pretty tasty too! Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

Ingredients (makes 8):
4 roma tomatoes, cut in half and hallowed out
1 cup cooked pearled barley (1/3 cup raw)
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (greens, corn and carrots), completely thawed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Salt and pepper

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and let it cook for about 1 minute. Add the mixed vegetables and sauté. Remove from heat. In a bowl, add the sautéed vegetables, cooked barley, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss everything really well together. Fill tomatoes with mixture and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
