      I enjoyed the varying tastes and textures in this. This was also the first time I have eaten barley as a main ingredient-usually I have used it as a complement to soups and stews. This was a nice change and was quite enjoyable. Thanks!

      Was looking for a side dish to replace rice. This one is definitely a keeper! I followed the recipe and added chopped carrots as other reviewers had suggested. I didn't have mushrooms on hand and I added Rotel diced tomatoes with chili peppers to kick up the flavor. Will definitely make this again. This did make a lot so plan on lots of leftovers.
