Juice of Half a Lemon Juice
1 tbs Jerk Seasoning (optional)

Add the lentils, quinoa, split red peas & pearl barley to a saucepan & rinse under cold water 2-3 times. Fill the pan with water so the grain mix is covered with about an inch of water. Add the celery, spring onion, garlic, miso, thyme, lemon & salt + pepper then mix well.
Pop a lid on the pan and place over a low heat. Let the mix cook away for 25-35 minutes, stirring it every now and then.
One the grains have cooked and absorbed the liquid stir through the jerk seasoning paste.
Serve the strew with sauerkraut, hummus & fresh herbs.
