      Made this last night as a side to parmesan crusted swai. It turn out absolutely delicious and healthier then risotto. 7 grams of fiber!! I just put in raw, baby spinach at the end and let it wilt in the warmth. It added a perfect crunch.

      Excellent Recipe! I had run out of barley, so I subbed brown rice. To save time and dishes, I just tossed the spinach on top of the rice mixture, covered and simmered for about 5 minutes (instead of steaming separately). Can't wait to try this with barley next time.
