Barley Hoppin’ John

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/barley_hoppin_john.html

From EatingWell:  September/October 2010

Traditionally made with rice, this classic Southern dish gets great toothsome texture here from quick-cooking barley instead. Serve with a green salad.

4 servings, 1 1/2 cups each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper and celery. Cook until the vegetables soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add broth, barley, thyme, lemon juice, crushed red pepper and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the barley is done, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in black-eyed peas. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Serve hot.
