Very good and different.

MY REVIEW

My husband loves this! I don't think he realizes how healthy it is. It's easy to make and delicious.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 8, 2011

I don't have many recipes that use barley or bulgur, and this one's a keeper! I've made it a number of times and love it.

MY REVIEW

extra cooking time... the prep I didn't clock, but it was more the 25 minute side

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 16, 2010

I added celery, roasted garlic, millet instead of bulgur, and used home-grown ground beef instead of the beans, but would do it with the beans in a heartbeat. It took extra time for me, too - 20-25 minutes. No cheese. My husband's thrilled!
