"Something different when your looking for something other then rice, potatoes, and pasta. Perhaps it could use more herbs and/or veggies but I liked it as is."

"It is filling and keeps you full but it is plain & boring, too much barley not enough other flavor. Next time I will use more veggies and seasonings or less barley."
