Besides being frugal, this side dish from our test kitchen is fast. That's because it calls for quick-cooking barley, which only takes 10-12 minutes to prepare.


  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1-1/2 cups cooked barley
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in oil for 8-10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the garlic and curry; saute for 1 minute. Warm barley in the microwave; stir into skillet. Add the remaining ingredients; cook and stir until heated through.
