Recipe by Snicklefritzie

This is a dish I just threw together. It is quick and easy. Kind of a middle-eastern taste and quite healthy!

Easy and very tasty. I made it even lower in fat by just using a bit of cooking spray instead of olive oil. This has just enough flavor to hold its own without overwhelming whatever you serve it with. I used regular barley, so of course it wasn't very quick, but it was very good. Thanks for posting.
