“Barley has to be my best food discovery of last year. It is really cheap and a little bit goes a long way in a dish because it really bulks out during cooking. Not to mention how healthy it is for you. This is my latest barley creation. You could have it as a side dish but I just split it between myself and my finance and it made a very filling meal for two.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Put pearl barley in an oven proof casserole dish.
  3. Saute the onions, carrots and celery in a little bit of oil (or use a cooking spray, I do) until the onions are tender.
  4. Add to the casserole dish and give it a stir to mix in with the pearl barley.
  5. Add the rest of the ingredients and give another stir.
  6. Cover and bake in the oven for about an hour. Keep checking every 25 minutes or so just to make sure it isn't going dry. It is ready when the barley has bulked up and gone tender from absorbing the liquid.
