Organic Barley

I have no idea what I thought I was going to do with organic barley, but would like it to be healthy and something other than beef barley soup. Any interesting TNT suggestions?

I have loved spinach and barley since I was a little girl. With a little butter and a few drops of vinegar on it .... heaven! So good that you wish it wasn't just a side dish! :-)

That sounds interesting ... cooked spinach, or raw mixed in with cooked barley?

Add it into beef stew as a thickener.

Cooked, with a little sauteed garlic, too!

I have been on a whole grain kick (lost 23 pounds by upping veggies, cutting fat and using only whole grains) and I have been using barley any place I would ordinarily use white rice.

Under stir fries, "risotto", stuffed peppers, you name it.
