DIRECTIONS

  • Place barley and water in medium sauce pan, stirring once to even out barley.
  • Heat uncovered on high until just boiling (about 5 minutes).
  • Stir once more, cover and reduce to simmer for 20 to 30 minutes (do not over cook as barley will stick to anything!).
  • Most importantly, toss barley to release steam and get air to every grain. This will keep it from sticking.
  • Now you can use it instead of rice in almost any dish, and add a bit of fibre to your diet.
  • NOTE: Barley can absorb even more liquid than this, so you can add it to soup, or make a gravy with it.
