Everyone attending Lucy’s August Bank Holiday BBQ had to bring a side dish. Lucy had requested something a bit like the Ottolenghi salads we often make. This is what was created without an Ottolenghi book and from ingredients from the pitifully poorly stocked Sainsbury’s local in Stratford.
Cooked pearl barley mixed with:
Chopped red chilli
Steamed green beans, broccoli and mini asparagus
Roasted butternut squash, courgette, peppers and tomatoes
All the herbs left in my fridge
Loads of lemon juice
