Healthy Vegan Fridays- Southwest Barley

Happy Saturday!  We are heading out for a weekend getaway, but I wanted to post a recipe (late!) for Healthy Vegan Fridays.  I've been making this for our lunches since it's easy, delicious and reheats very well.

Southwest Barley
2/3 cup barley
2 cups veggie broth
1/2 to 1 tablespoon chili powder
salt and pepper to taste

Combine the barley and broth, cover and bring to a boil and then simmer until cooked, about 45 minutes. Stir in the southwest blend and make sure it's heated through.  Add in the spices; salt and pepper will vary depending on what brand of broth you use.

Plate the barley and top with pico de gallo and avocado.  Serves 2 as a main dish, 4 as a side.

The finished product!
