I thought of putting some ingredients together & trying it out and this came out well. This came out delicious, barley takes time to cook, but it is worth it for the nutrition. It is rich in many beneficial nutrients, reduce hunger & may help lose weight,

fiber content helps with digestion, and may help reduce heart rise (healthline.com). Not only are green peppers high in iron, but they’re also rich in Vitamin C, which can help your body absorb iron more efficiently. This combination makes green peppers a superfood when it comes to preventing and treating iron-deficient anemia (webbed.com).
