    Like all the ingredients, the toasting of barley is wonderful. I used about 3 cups of butternut squash which weighed about one pound. Timing is perfect as the barley was a tad chewy like that. Used 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper-- would do again. But next time would cut the squash way smaller probably 1/2 inch and then wait and add with liquids. I would mix lemon zest with chopped parsley and stir in.

    Great even without the lemon. My son and his roomate gobbled this up after my wife saying they wouldn"t even try it.
