CARROT

Like all colourful vegetables, carrots are a gold mine of antioxidants such as carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Beta-carotene in carrots helps protect vision (yes your grandmother was right!). A high intake of carotenoids has been linked with a significant decrease in post-menopausal breast cancer, as well as prostate cancer.

Cook the barley:¬†¬†Heat¬† the oven to 400F.¬†Rinse and dry all produces.¬†In a medium pot, add the barley,¬†water¬†(1 1/2 cup,¬†3 cup) and¬†salt¬†(1/2 tsp, ¬ľ tsp) Bring to a boil, cover and let simmer 25 minutes.¬†

Bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to medium/low, cover and cook 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside.

CARROTS
Like all colourful vegetables, carrots are a gold mine of antioxidants such as carotenoids, polyphenols and vitamins. Beta-carotene in carrots helps protect vision (yes your grandmother was right!). A high intake of carotenoids has been linked with a significant decrease in post-menopausal breast cancer, as well as prostate cancer.
