We are moving away from the traditional American diet, so knew that we would need to add more seasonings. A bit of creole seasoning did the trick. Others may not need the extra seasoning. Very delicious and easy. I think we'll try it with shrimp next time!
Barley Hoppin’ John

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

My boyfriend and I are not vegans so I added shrimp and chicken on top. It was delicious! I also could not find quick cooking barley...believe it or not. So I used pearl couscous.Came out perfect...definitely will make again.
This dish is extremely easy to prepare and quite filling. I served it with an additional side of vegetables. I am on a vegan fast for Lent, and this fit the bill. I did find that the dish did not have a lot of flavor, so I sprinkled some Mrs. Dash on at the table. This did the trick.
Yum! I made this for New Years Day and it was a big hit with my family.
