    Aunt Cookie's Note:

    I found this in a very old Vegetarian Times magazine. I really like barley, but most barley recipes are for soup. I think this is a nice departure.

      I opted for the stock over the water (beef - we're somewhat carniverous). Lil sis liked this quite a bit, but DH had a very hard time deciding whether or not he cared for it at all. I had a hard time deciding on this one too, but weirdly enough I was pretty sure if I liked it at all, I liked it quite a bit. Thanks for posting. We'll probably try this again, hopefully when we're not all in such a weird and indecisive mood.
