DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, bring barley and water to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer till barley is tender and liquid is absorbed, 45-50 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • About 10 minutes before barley is done, heat olive oil over medium heat in large non-stick saucepan. Add onion and cook till transluscent and beginning to brown at the edges, about 3 minutes.
  • Add garlic and pesto and stir till well mixed. Add mushrooms and cook till tender, 4 minutes.
  • Add cooked barley and spinach and stir till well combined and spinach is beginning to wilt. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot.
