    From the Test Kitchen

    The star of these vibrant vegetarian bowls is hearty tofu—roasted with herby za'atar then tossed in a spicy-sweet glaze—which comes together over a bed of barley studded with sautéed zucchini and onion. It's all complete with crisp marinated vegetables and a dollop of creamy labneh for cooling contrast.

    tips & techniques
    Make the glaze & marinate the shrimp
    1 Make the glaze & marinate the shrimp

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. In a bowl, combine the harissa paste and honey (kneading the packet before opening). Season with salt and pepper; whisk to combine. Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels (remove the tails if desired). Transfer to the bowl of glaze; season with salt, pepper, and the za'atar; stir to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes.

    Cook the barley
    2 Cook the barley

    Meanwhile, add the barley to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 28 to 30 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

    Prepare the remaining ingredients
    3 Prepare the remaining ingredients

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion. Medium dice the zucchini. Pick the mint leaves off the stems. Halve the tomatoes. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. In a bowl, combine the halved tomatoes, sliced cucumber, a drizzle of olive oil, and half the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes; taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    4 Cook the shrimp
    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the marinated shrimp (including any glaze) in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly opaque. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Transfer to a separate bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Rinse and wipe out the pan.
