Rice and Barley Side

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chef LadyRed

This recipe is packed with tons of flavor. Tastes similar to the ricearoni sides you can buy. The first time I made this hubby could not stop eating it.

I agree with LadyRed, this does taste a lot like a Rice-a-Roni side dish. I loved it and wanted more. I used just a little oil rather than the butter and homemade broth (no water). And I used brown basmati, increasing the cooking time to 40 minutes. Delicious.
