      Awesome recipe! One thing that I would like to point out is that fresh coriander is typically a reference to cilantro. This being the case, I used cilantro for the last ingredient. The type of stock was not specified - so I used low sodium chicken stock. Very healthy recipe that makes much more than 6 servings! I'd estimate getting 8-10 heaping bowls out of this. The fragrance is outstanding - goes great with a side of cornbread! Thanks!

      A very good and easy side dish that could easily be the main dish. The flavors and texture are very pleasing. Made for ZWT 7.

      Absolutely wonderful! I cut the recipe down to half and made it for myself and DD, and DD being a very picky eater said 'it's nice'! DH doesn't care less for lentils but did have a taste and said it was alright, but I am not counting him in. Added in chicken stock, didn't have any brown onions so used a regular white one instead. I thought I had a bag of mixed veggies with cauliflowers but it had everything else but that. So I added in carrots and corn in place of cauliflowers. I had to add in a bit more stock since the barley took a bit longer to cook and I am not sure what the texture should be like, but what I ended up was somewhat like a creamy risotto (a bit lumpy) but doesn't matter since it tasted great! Thank you, Katew, for sharing this wonderful recipe, definitely will be making it again! Made for PAC Spring '08.
