This recipe was super easy but didn't have much flavor. Thank you for posting.

Awsome recipe. 27*, Martina. I did mine on the stovetop and used pistachios just before serving but otherwise made it as directed. This is going to be a regular grain around here.

I absolutely love barley and this is a fantastic recipe and so versatile! I've made it with chicken broth or beef broth but either way I add in some raisins, maybe a 1/4 cup, that I've reconstituted in hot water. It's not too much to make it sweet, just balances the flavor nicely and sometimes I stir in a little butter at the end to make it nice and creamy. Thank you so much for a recipe the whole family enjoys!
