Veggie and Barley Stir fry with Balsamic and Honey sauce
Maybe I speak for all of us when I say…I know I’m going to be indulging when it comes to food over the next week with Thanksgiving coming up. SO I needed some veggies, and a lot of them, in my life. I created this from what I had in my fridge (literally), so feel free to use whatever veggies you want. I also was super impressed with the simplicity and deliciousness of this sauce…YUM! Here’s what you’ll need:
¼ cup of barley
2 cups of broccoli
2 cups of Brussels sprouts
1 cup of chopped up asparagus
1 tablespoon of honey
3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
Drain the veggies when done and sprinkle some salt and pepper on top.
Spray a large pan with non-stick spray and put in the chopped up asparagus. Make the barley now as instructed.
Add in the Brussels sprouts and broccoli to the pan with asparagus. Put on medium heat and stir every 2-3 minutes or so.
In a small dish, combine the honey and balsamic. Stir a lot until the honey sort of melts into the balsamic.
When the barley is done, pour the honey mixture over the vegetables. Stir a couple of times then add in the barley.
Turn off heat and stir a little bit then let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Then serve! I sprinkled a little bit of cheese on top. This recipe makes about 2 portions AND this is under 200 CALORIES!!! Sooooo healthy, delicious, and amazing. The glaze is honestly really good. I’m going to use this glaze with chicken later this week. I feel so full and not drowsy at all- oh the magic of healthy eating.
