Pot Barley is healthy for you and a great variation to a fried rice. It’s tossed with sausage, bacon, chicken, potato, peppers and spinach and finished off with some soya sauce for that umami boost.

2 1/2 cups Pot Barley, soaked overnight and drained very well
1 potato diced in very small cubes
1 red onion finely chopped
3 – 4 sausages cut in small cubes
3 –4 rashers of bacon(I used Turkey) cut fine
1 green pepper cut into small dice
1 cup left over cooked chicken cut into small dice
2 cups fresh spinach roughly chopped
3 – 4 tbsps light soya sauce
In a large non stick sauté pan, heat some Olive oil and cook the potatoes first till golden brown
Add the onion and sauté till golden brown and follow with the sausage and bacon
Add the cooked chicken and green pepper
Cook for without stirring about 3 – 4 minutes at a time so the ingredients get a nice dark colour at the bottom
Depending on the size of your sauté pan, either take everything out to sauté the barley or make a well in the centre and let the barley caramelize a little bit
Mix together well and add the spinach which will wilt and cook in a few minutes
Add the soya, toss and serve!
