Tasted kind of like a stew. I think I may have used a bit too much broth. I'd like to see the barley be a little more grainey, like rice. I'll try it again with a bit less liquid. I also added a few spices, some parsley and omitted the dill. Overall, a great side dish. Yumm!!

To suit my taste, I substituted a zucchini for the bell pepper and omitted the dill. I also added chicken as suggested and ended up with a yummy, nutritous lunch. However, the cooking time was rather long... the veggies were soft (almost mushy) after baking just 35 minutes.
