Orzo & Toasted Barley

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

From EatingWell:  September/October 1993

Orzo is a small, rice-shaped pasta. To add a little color and texture, the barley is lightly toasted beforehand.

4 servings | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add barley and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and toasted, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Add orzo and thyme. Stir once, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes to absorb any remaining liquid. Stir in chives (or scallion greens) and season with salt and pepper.
