    1. 1
      In a large skillet, saute the oil, onion, rice, barley, and ginger for 3 minutes.
    2. 2
      Then add the broth, tomatoes, garlic, bell pepper and cover.
    3. 3
      Salt and pepper to taste then simmer for 20 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed.
    4. 4
      Then add the beans and hot sauce to taste if desired. Re-cover and simmer an additional 5-10 minutes or until rice and barley are fully cooked.
    5. 5
      Remove from heat and stir in coarsley chopped cilantro. Serve and enjoy.

      Great rice recipe. 3 WW points. I was nervous how my family would feel about the barley, but while my husband noticed there was something odd looking about the rice, neither of us could find a difference in the taste or texture. I did not add hot sauce, but felt the dish really could have used some. This does make a lot. We had half tonight for dinner and plan to have the second half tomorrow. Because I did not add any hot sauce the dish will easily be adapted to a Tex-Mex meal. Great dish, I will be keeping the recipe for future use for sure. Tonight I served it with Thai Chicken Cakes With Sweet Chilli Sauce, Spicy Cucumber Salad, and a green salad.
