SO healthy and nutritious, Did I mention delicious, Added chilli flakes and mixed herbs which included sage too, Also mashed so hubby wouldn't notice red onions in true!

Very nice, hearty, and healthy stew. I ended up adding an additional 2 cups broth, as the barley really absorbed it. The seasonings were just right for my taste. Made a great fall lunch. Thanks for the post.

i would say that it tastes pretty bland and boring. to quote the hubby "sure, its healthy but it still has to taste good" the 14 month old baby chomped it down we ate it with cheese to get it down
