Day 128: Tomato and Cheese Barley

Tomato and Cheese Barley

On Monday, I made some delicious tomato and cheese barley. I didn’t really follow a recipe, but checked out this vegan recipe before I started cooking. Apparently, it’s actually based on a recipe from Vegan Yum Yum. Anyways, here’s the recipe I created.


  • 2 cups of barley, dry
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 can of chicken broth
  • 4 small tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 3/4 cup of cheese (I used leftover chihuahua cheese, but mozzarella would work)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of dried oregano
  • 3/4 tablespoon of dried basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pepper to taste


  • Combine everything.
  • Cook for 45 minutes or until water has absorbed and you have a nice creamy, cheesy barley dish.
