      I really loved the flavor of this dish. DH didn't care for it as much, but what does he know? ;) I didn't have quick cooking barley, so I doubled the carrot juice and cooked it with the barley until it reduced to one cup, then added the spices and finished with step 2, cooking it for the final 15 minutes with the lid on. I especially loved that the avocado was still perfectly green the next day.
