Your Bowl.
Dice the roasted beets and mix it with a handful of cooked barley and a spoonful of soy sauce. Your white barley now turns fuchsia. Set them aside.

In a large bowl toss them all together.

Now that's a colorful way to welcome Spring.

Spring is here but it still is cold. In our garden the daffodils have bloomed so I know it is Spring.

yummmmy :) I want this for lunch tomorrow - but I have never cooked with Barley - maybe I can add Quinoa?

Anrosh said...

solilo, the night has become cold again. you should be on the west coast to say - daffodils have bloomed

pink dogwood -- quinoa is perfect.

Indyeah said...

A beautiful, colourful and soulful salad.... tempting too.

It really must have been warm (single digit temperatures in degrees Centigrade) for you to have opened the windows. I can understand your spring feelings - having lived in Toronto for six winters - how we used to eagerly await for some colour, other than the white snow and dark skies. Tulips were our first indications of spring, and also the first sign of lifting spirits and skies after the dreary cold.

Very colourful! Seems a shame to eat it.:)

Bonjour Anrosh,

First time in my life (and my wifes') we hear about roasted beetroot!! Do you mean you put slices (cooked? raw?) in a frying pen?

Hoping for your input before a trial run.


Anrosh said...

paula and skip : - if it is food there is always room for more.

manju - ha ha ..

georg - roasted meant baked in the oven. put them whole in the oven wrapped in alumnium foil and it comes out all nice and roasted.
