I am not a vegetarian but this was the only course I had for dinner and it was great!! I love barley and this is just another great way to prepare it. So simple and so good.

Very good. I did add a 16 oz package of stir fry veggies - trying to get our quota of vegetables. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

Wow! Who knew barley could be such an awesome sidedish?! I used olive oil instead of butter. I added corn and sliced black olives. Also melted a little cheddar cheese on top during the last 5 minutes. This is so much better than the same old rice dish!
