A Witch's View - Purple Carrot Review - Herbed Barley Bowl

Our last recipe with Purple Carrot is the Herbed Barely Bowl.

So let's get started.  The greens that came with this were pretty badly wilted so I just used some mixed green salad from the grocery store.

Here's the whole group.

 I had to pick up some parsley from the store as well.  As you can see it was a bit damaged in transit.

 Next we cleaned and cooked up the mushrooms.

 All the while, our barely just cooked and cooked.  It took about twice as long as the card said to become soft.

 We thinly sliced our peppers and cooked them in some sugar water to create a pickling effect.

 Finally we plated.  It was just ok for me.  Hubby really liked it, I wasn't feeling the mushrooms.  They were pretty slimy from the butter and just reminded me of an oyster.  Gross.  :P

So pretty much we had no luck with Purple Carrot.  I did try everything that we got from them though. We are still getting our GreenChef meals regularly and I love them. I still take photos and share my meals from them on Instagram and on Facebook.  If you think you'd like to try them here's a link.
