Warm Barley, Chickpeas & Roasted Beets Salad 

Last shabbath I was in a hurry and wanted to prepare a salad that would be satisfying, yummy and shabbath friendly (aka. holiday worth); plus, needed to be something different to the salads I make over and over again. I opened my fridge and grabbed what I felt would go well together and the result was this Barley, Chickpeas & Roasted Beets Salad. Perfect as a side dish, or by itself as lunch or dinner.

This Barley, Chickpeas & Roasted Beets Salad is perfect in every way: is hearty, full of flavor, satisfying, full of nutrients and so fresh.

In this salad I used roasted beets that I had ready on the fridge. This gave a hint of flavor quite unexpected. Honestly, this combo wasn’t like anything I’ve tasted before. So delicious.

For roasting the beets you just need to wrap them in aluminum foil (you can technically just put them without peeling in he hot oven) and roast in the preheated oven at 475°F for about 40 minutes (the time will depend on the size of the beets. You can cut them in half to reduce the time). They are ready when they are fork tender with a little bite in the center (don’t overcook. Remember they will continue to cook while they are cooling down). Get them out of the oven and let cool down until they are easy to handle. Peel the skin off and cut in the desired shape. I used a parisienne scoop of melon ball to cut mine.

On the other side, we have the barley, the humble ingredient that makes this salad so satisfying. I covered the barley with water and boiled for about 30 minutes on medium high (or until they are al dente). This would be a perfect occassion to use leftover barley if it happens that you have some in the fridge.

Let’s jump to the recipe:


I honestly didn’t expect this quick mix and match of veggies, chickpeas and barley taste so good but now that it showed how good it is I will probably be making this salad more frequently, not just on shabbath.

How to Make Tabouleh {Parsley & Bulgur Salad}

Despite the cold weather and my love for soup, on Wednesday I was craving something more vivid, crunchy and tangy so I decided to make Tabouleh or Tabuli for lunch instead.

This vegan salad is one of my favorites so far because:

It has a lot of flavor. All that chopped parsley just take this salad to the next level.

Uses a few ingredients. I LOVE those recipes that take few ingredients I usually have around the house, and I am sure you are the same.

It is very satisfying. Some people may think a salad is just “water” (meaning like you will be hungry five minutes after eating) BUT this is a really satisfying lunch or dinner (or even breakfast! Why not?). So satisfying you won’t worry about food for a long time.

It is extremely easy to make. If you can move your arms and use a knife, you are all set.

Even if you don’t normally like salads, you are going to love this one. This easy and refreshing salad is perfect for those who are trying to incorporate more veggies in their diets. Believe me, you can eat the whole bowl and dont even notice ? plus, you won’t feel guilty at all!



So easy and good looking, right? This should be enough reason to eat salad everyday.
