      This is about as simple as it gets. I used farmstand shallots and the first garlic of the season. I made quinoa, and used plain water instead of broth, because I made a vegetarian dinner. Delicious, and easy -- what's not to like about that? Thanks, Kate!

      Very good recipe. I had to omit most of the garlic as I'm nursing a baby who doesn't care for it, but it was good. I added some roasted mushrooms but other than these two change left it alone. I used quinoa and made sure to toast it well. We took it to a friend's house to add to the dinner and it was loved by all, including children!

      This did introduce me to using barley as a side rathter than rice. The instructions were clear and the texture of the finished product was great. However we felt it was a bit bland made as stated (our personal tastes I'm sure). I mixed with the ingredients for Cajun rice that I make and it is more to our spicier tastes now. Thank you for a starter for something new on our menu.
