A bit of cooked Barley was the “by-product” of my Healthy Lemon Ginger Barley Water recipe awhile back. Well, if you know me, you know I try to waste nothing, and sure didn’t want to waste a morsel of wonderful, chewy, nutty Barley. (I love it, and so should you, btw! It’s really good for you!) And so I went on a quest and that quest ended in this Salad with Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables & Barley. It’s a lot to use a cup of Barley, huh?!
If you’re looking for a recipe that’s going to use up some of the summer bounty, Smoky Sheet Tray Roasted Vegetables are it!
Does it ever seem like you can pinpoint, in time, when a recipe was developed if you’ve been in the habit of following food trends? And while some things are crazy (foams come to mind) others have staying power. I’m talking Roasted Vegetables and I’m talking Balsamic Vinegar. So I’m thinking late ’90’s, early 2000’s for this dish. And they’re just as good today as they were then.
