Top Review by Geema

This is a very flavorful side dish, truly delicious and filling. I remember making a similiar barley casserole from a James Bead book, which got lost in one of my many moves. This one is just as good, if not better, than the one I remember. I omitted the sugar. I wasn't sure what it added to the recipe, since I used large sweet onions and didn't need more sugar to carmelize. Barley is such an underused grain. Try it in this recipe and you won't be disappointed. Chia...this is another winner.
