Veggie sandwiches-

Veggie sandwiches-
Yesterday I threw together a fast dinner and it was a hit, so sharing it here. I cook on the fly, just feel free to substitute or add to your taste.

1 red onion sliced thin
2 zucchini grated
1-2 carrots grated
kale or spinach shredded
black beans
herbs and spices(I used cilantro, chili powder, cumin powder, turmeric and some indian spices, salt, pepper.)
sprinkle with lime/lemon juice -optional but i feel it "perks" everything up

You could also add sweet peas and corn or whatever veggies you like.

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil till light brown. Add the vegs to it and saute till they are cooked. Add in the spices stir well, then sprinkle the lime juice. I served on martins potato buns since they dont have HFCS. Fruit on the side.

Barley soup

soak barley, lentil(whole masoor) and a small amt of toor dal for couple hours
add to pressure cooker with plenty of water, diced red onion, potato, carrot, cumin, black pepper, chili powder, salt, turmeric, 1 bay leaf and splash of olive oil. Pressure cook 1 whistle.

Open cooker and add smashed tomato, diced zucchini, frozen corn, spinach, green peas, beans etc. Whatever veg u have on hand. add more water/spices as needed
Boil longer till vegs and barley are fully cooked.
