Herbed Barley and Lentils

1/2 C. chopped onions

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3 C. coconut water or water blended with a date

1 C. hulled barley*

1/4 C. lentils

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning

1 T. chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried

1 T. finely chopped fresh chives or 1 tsp. dried

2 T. finely chopped fresh basil or 1/2 tsp. dried


In a large saucepan, sauté onions and garlic in a small amount of coconut water, about 5 minutes or until soft. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until barley and lentils are tender and water is absorbed (about 1 hour). * Hulled barley is barley that has been minimally processed to remove only the tough inedible outer hull. Do not use pearled barley; it receives additional processing and has a lower nutritional value.
