Barley & Rice Pilaf from Company's Coming

Barley & Rice Pilaf from Company's Coming created by Autumneyes

This is an amazing recipe. Not only is it great as a side dish, it's terrific all on its own. Feel free to change up the vegetables. Because of my love for onions.....I tend to cut them into large chunks. This makes a large amount, but I usually cut it in half. Freezes well too! Slightly different from others already posted.

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.
  • Add celery, onion and garlic and cook for 5 - 10 minutes or until the onion has softened to your liking -- or not :).
  • Transfer to a 3 quart casserole dish.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in the same frying pan, and add the barley and rice.
  • Heat and stir for about 5 minutes, or until the grains start to turn golden brown.
  • Add this to the onion mixture, along with the water, carrots, bouillon, parsley and pepper. Stir well.
  • Bake, covered, for about 2 hours or until the barley is tender and liquid absorbed.

    This was a wonderful side dish!!! It was delicious and nice to know it's as healthy as it was tasty!! Will definitely be a keeper, that I will make over and over again. It did make too much for the two of us and I will half the recipe next time.

    Really liked the versatility and taste of this side dish -- served with steak filet Mignon, but could see it being a great side for a number of different main dishes (or a meal all by itself). Plus, it tasted even better the next day with leftover Italian Roast Pork Loin (another recipe from this site). Like other reviewers, I added mushrooms, but sauteed them separately with a little bit of butter, and also used homemade chicken stock. Next time, I might add some peas at the last minute, or perhaps sauteed fresh asparagus.
