    PinkCherryBlossom's Note:

    I'm on a mission to make barley trendy again. I think it is criminally underused. we used to get this at least once a week when I was at boarding school and it kept you warm and full for hours.

      I found it a bit plain, so I added a bunch of fresh lemon thyme, some paprika, cumin seeds (ground), and a bunch of fresh shiitake mushrooms. I also used regular barley, as pearl barley is processed. I had to cook it a lot longer, but it was yummy! Thanks for bringing barley back!

      Nice recipe. I love barley, too; it has such a lovely flavour and texture. I didn't have any white wine (!) so I used sherry instead, and it came out fine. Oh, and I bunged in a load of pepper (black and white) to give it a bit of zing!
