Vegetable barley – One pot dinner

Another goodie
I made this months ago but it was saved to my drafts.


Vegetable barley skillet

2-3 tablespoons olive oil
2 bell peppers, any color, chopped into small pieces
2 cups (1 container) mushrooms (white or baby bella), sliced or chopped
3 cloves (or more to taste) garlic, pressed or very finely chopped
1 cup uncooked barley
1-3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 box frozen spinach, (Or use fresh greens – spinach, kale, or swiss chard)
1 can small white or navy beans
1 – 2 cups grape tomatoes, cut in halves
1/2 cup (or more to taste) grated parmesan cheese

What’s for dinner ? Tomato Basil Chicken

Have been trying to make new dishes lately and have been using Pinterest to find them.
It was between

Skinny chicken and broccoli Alfredo

chicken, spinach, and cannellini beans quesadillas

or tomato basil chicken.
The tomato basil chicken looked easy and not too much work. It was already 8ish so didn’t want to do too much work.
Not the best photos but here is what I made

I ended up not using the squash in this, also forgot to put butter in the picture 🙂
