I'm a huge fan of the mixed beans at Pita Jungle, and Amir came up with a recipe that is so similar! The beans are awesome by themselves, wrapped up in a whole wheat tortilla with salsa, or served with brown rice, veggies, and tofu (similar to the Pita Jungle Macro Platter). Enjoy!
1/2 medium onion
1 t chili powder
1/2 cup barley (all the beans are dried, not canned, BTW)
1/2 cup garbonzo beans
1 cup lima beans
1 cup kidney beans
1 t veggie bouillon
Sautee the onion with water, then add the chili powder.
Then put the onions in a large pot, add all the beans and finally the bouillon.
Add enough water so the water level is 4 inches above the beans
Bring to a boil, then lower so the pot is just barely boiling.
Let sit for six hours. Yes, six hours--this is a dish to make on the weekend when you're going to be around the house for a while! :)
Stir it every 30 minutes or so and make sure there is enough water and the beans are not drying out.
