Yummy beetroot & pearl barley salad

Pearl barley and beetroot salad Gregor is responsible for most of the creative activity in the sunshine house kitchen. But occasionally, I take over. Like last night.

I made this really yummy salad. It was so yummy, I thought I would share it with you.


5 medium beetroot, peeled and cubed
1 brown onion, chopped
Leaves of beetroot
1 bunch of kale
1 cup of pearl barley
1 cube of veggie stock
1 cup of raw cashews
balsamic vinegar
marinated feta


Toss cubed beetroot and chopped onion in baking dish with cashews, salt, balsamic vinegar and oil. Cook on 170 degrees Celcius for 35 min or until caramelised.

Meanwhile, cover barley in two cups of cold water. Add cube of stock and cook on low burner for about 20-30 min or until soft.

Steam kale and beetroot leaves.

Toss ingredients together in a salad bowl with marinated feta.
