MY HUSBAND and I grew up on plain hearty foods, and we both learned early on that simple food, well prepared, maintains good health. I always felt I was giving my family the best when I prepared this dish. They loved the nutty flavor and chewy texture of the barley, and it was a delicious departure from rice as a side dish.—Elaine Kremenak Grants Pass, Oregon

"I used a can of sliced mushrooms and 1 Tbs of dried, minced onion as that was what I had on hand. This has a great texture and a good flavor. Even my picky kids loved it and asked if we can keep this recipe with our favorite recipes. Thanks for sharing!"
