This is one of my favorite recipes. In fact I've either made it or given the

It's from Vegetarian Times (9/89 issue).
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup water
1 cup barley
1 cup dry lentils
6 cups water
1 carrot, shredded
2 cups low-sodium tomato sauce
2 Tbs. vinegar
2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
1 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. marjoram
Freshly ground pepper
Saute onion, celery, garlic, and green pepper in water until softened. Add
barley, lentils and 6 cups water. Bring to a boil, stir, reduce heat, cover
and cook for 30 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, stir, cover and cook for
30 to 40 minutes more. To thicken, allow stew to rest for 10 minutes.
Serves 6 to 8.
