Barley Salad with Kalamata Olives and Tomatoes

I found this recipe in the Real Food Daily cookbook by Ann Gentry. I highly recommend the book - it is packed full of amazing, inspiring cooking ideas...

This was my first experience working with barley, which is a great source of fiber and protein and is super simple to prepare. This salad is full of so many fresh, delicious ingredients. It is good warm, room temperature, or cold, and you can literally feel yourself getting healthier as you eat it.

Spicy BBQ Seitan

Hello! Prepare to have your mind blown. I apologize for my cockiness, but seriously... Fellow culinary adventurers - have you ever made something that is so very good that you actually holler out loud with every bite? Okay, okay, enough gloating. I'm just sayin' - this is one of those dishes. What's more is that it is easily one of the simplest dishes I have ever prepared.
