My idea of a treat

leave a comment »

The Wife’s idea of a treat tends toward carrot cake and chocolate, but my own taste is for the savory, like the nice lunch-time treat that I just made (and ate).

In a small bowl (like the bowl I used, shown at the right, post-treat) mix:

about 1/2 cup black-eyed peas
about 1/3 cup hulled barley
2 cloves garlic, minced
about 1/4 cup pickled peppers, minced
1/2 avocado, chopped small
about 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
good dash Frank’s Hot Sauce

I mixed that well, stirring with the spoon. The black-eyed peas had been cooked with a teaspoon of baking soda, so they were very tender. The hulled barley (cooked separately, natch) had also turned out well — tender with grains not clumped together.

It was a tasty treat — nutritious, healthful, and satisfying.
