      This is a great recipe. My husband commented how similar the texture of the barley is to ground meat, so you don't really feel like you are missing anything. I had big peppers, so I halved them and that worked just fine. Next time I might add more mushrooms, but otherwise they were perfect as posted.

      Wow these were really good peppers! I cooked my peppers in the microwave with a little water for about 4 minutes before stuffing them, otherwise made just as directed and wouldn't change a thing. The marinara sauce was great with these and they were quite filling - didn't miss the meat at all. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      I love this recipe! I am a big fan of traditional stuffed peppers with the meat and rice, but I have to admit, I like these even better. I had to use quick-cooking barley because it's what I had on hand, so I didn't pre-cook it. I also used sharp white cheddar cheese and used a can of plain tomato sauce. This works really well in a slow-cooker, too. I added a cup of water to the bottom and cooked it on high for 3 hours or so. This is what I call a perfect recipe!
