This isn’t exactly a recipe, but I wanted to share my favorite way to cook barley as a simple side dish. I prefer to use Knorr Vegetable Bouillon to make the broth, but you can certainly use your favorite. Pearl barley can usually be found in the grocery store near the dried beans. I have not located hulled barley in the conventional grocery store, but because the grain is less processed, it would take more time to cook.
3 c. broth (vegetable, chicken, or beef)
1 c. barley
Combine barley and broth in a pot, and simmer covered for about 40 minutes, until the broth is almost absorbed and the barley is cooked.
