Make

  1. Heat oven to 375F (or 190C) degrees.
  2. Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then garlic and onions to heated oil with some salt and pepper. Saute for ~2 minutes, until softened.
  3. Next fold in sausage, beans, leftover barley, dried herbs, and crushed tomatoes. Saute for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Brush the outside of the peppers with some cooking oil and then place pepper halves into a baking dish or onto a sheet pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and then divide filling into peppers.
  5. Transfer to oven, and roast for 10 to 12 minutes (if you’re a cheese fan and have some cheese in your fridge, sprinkle on in the last half of cooking).
  6. While peppers are roasting, whisk vinegar, Dijon, maple syrup and cooking oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. When peppers are done, toss vinaigrette with green lettuce and enjoy!
