Recipe by Gus-Gus
For never having made barley before...I must say this turned out quite nice. I paired this with a grilled onion and garlic pork loin as a side dish. Awesome substitute for rice!
- 1 cup dry barley
- 1 1⁄4 cups water
- 1 1⁄4 cups chicken broth
- 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon onion powder or 1 tablespoon of minced onion
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parsley (to taste)
Directions See How It's Made
- Cook onion and garlic until sauteed well. Set to the side.Combine water and broth and cook barley according to directions on package. Juice lemon then add juice to cooking barley. When you can start to see a little of the barley through the water, add the cooked onions and garlic. Barley should be tender but not mushy or crunchy-hard. Add parsley to barley and fold mixture in until even through out. Parsley may wilt a bit due to heat. You may wait to add parsley until you are ready to serve -- But don't let it get cold.
