This simple but wholesome salad is surprisingly moreish thanks to the appealing, chewy texture of the barley mixed with the decadent sweetness of the roasted sweet potato and maple syrup (or agave).

Barley is a great grain to introduce into your diet as it not only has a wicked nutty taste, but is high in fibre and has a low GI.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
1 cup pearl barley
4 cups water
750g sweet potato, peeled and cut into 2cm cubes
2 tbsp maple syrup / agave
2 tbsp olive oil
60g baby spinach
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly crushed
1 avocado, deseeded and diced

Method
In a medium saucepan, place the barley and water, bringing to a boil over a high heat. Reduce to a simmer and leave until just tender. Then drain and rinse with cold water.



Preheat oven to 200C and line a baking tray.
Arrange the sweet potato slices across the tray in a single layer.
Drizzle the maple syrup (or agave) and oil over.
Roast for 20 minutes.



On a platter or large serving bowl, combine the spinach, barley, sweet potato, walnuts and avocado. Season with cracked pepper and serve warm.
