DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet, then add the onion and cook gently for 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in the pearl barley and continue to cook, stirring, for a few minutes.
  • Pour in the wine and simmer until it is absorbed.
  • Pour in the stock a quarter at a time and simmer until the stock is absorbed before adding more. It should take 45 minutes or so for all the stock to be absorbed.
  • 10 minutes before finishing cooking, stir in the peas. Continue to simmer until nearly all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Turn off the heat, stir in the cream cheese and most of the chives.
  • Season with salt and pepper to your taste and serve with the remaining chives scattered over the top.
