1 starch, 2 vegetable
1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 medium onion (chopped)
1 medium rib of celery
1 medium garlic clove (minced)
14.5 oz. canned, no-salt-added, diced tomatoes (undrained)
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 cup chopped kale
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup uncooked, quick-cooking barley
1/2 tsp. dried basil (crumbled)
1/2 tsp. dried oregano (crumbled)
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. shredded, or, grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. shredded, or, grated Parmesan cheese
Lightly spray a large Dutch oven with cooking spray. Add the oil, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the onion and celery over medium-high heat until golden, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for 10 seconds. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the Parmesan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the barley is cooked.
