"Another Heart Healthy recipe. This recipe features Portobellos, but feel free to substitute another variety of wild or cultivated mushroom. Can be made into a vegetarian dish by using vegetable broth in place of chicken broth."

"Really nice flavour and very healthy! I added some dried garlic towards the end of cooking to boost the garlic flavour and this was lovely with some grated parmesan sprinkled over the top."
"This is so delicious, Debb! Yum! I added a couple of white mushrooms and a couple of cremini mushrooms to the three portabella that made up just over 8oz. I also couldn't find my dill, so I used my favourite mushroom herb partner, thyme. I also stepped up the pepper. I only had one cup of barley, so I used 1/4 cup of brown rice to make up the amount, and that worked perfect. This is so, so, so, good!!! Thanks, Debb, for posting it! Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag."
"Great side dish to a roast chicken. I cut the recipe in half with no problem. We don't like dill so I used marjoram, which pairs well with mushrooms. Will be making this again! Made for Fall 2012 PAC game."
"Wow! This is really yummy! I love barley, and this is such a great way to prepare it. The end product is so rich and creamy; you'll completely forget the fact that it's good for you. I didn't have any fresh mushrooms, so I used 1/2 oz of dried porcini, then used the soaking liquid instead of part of the broth. All I had was dried dill, so I used dried instead of fresh. Loved, loved, loved it! I'll definitely make again."
"Russ and I have been eating quite a bit of barley lately-I'd have to say this one is my favourite so far. It was ever so quick to put together, then needed no watching while it cooked. My sort of dish!. I used fresh thyme from my garden instead of dill and added that early on, then finished the dish with fresh parsley. More than 5 stars in our opinions!"
"This is delicious in a very earthy fashion. I love it made as directed using recipe #135453. Thanks, Debbwl! Made for PRMR tag game."
"I really loved this! I used baby portabellos instead of the full sized ones. I also added a little bit of toasted pecans to the mix. I'll do this one again. Its very hearty and delicious!"
"I had 10 ounces of portabella mushrooms. I needed to add 1 cup of chicken broth near the end of cooking cause the barley was too crunchy. The dill weed is a great addition. Thanks Debb :) Made for Holiday tag"
"This was fabulous! I used the suggested Portabella and the vegetable stock option. I would highly recommend using the more robust mushroom. I believe the button variety would not yield the depth of flavor. Also, don't leave out the fresh dill. It added so much to the dish. Made for TYM Tag Game. :)"
