Copy Cat Recipe: Jerusalem Bowl from Fresh

Fresh is a great vegan/vegetarian restaurant in Toronto. Their menu is filled with versatility and different recipes that make you question if you truly need meat in your life.

Being frugal is something that I had to become when I first moved to Toronto. I love eating out and trying new restaurants in Toronto but, it does come with a price. When it comes to take-out restaurants, I try eating there only once and then finding a way to imitate the recipe at home.

Shopping bag

Spinach: 75 cent/lb

Red Onion: 99 cent

Tomatoes: 2.99$ for a pint

I decided to use barley because I feel more full whenever I eat this instead of rice. Barley is a great source of iron and fibre.
