Barley Hoppin’ John

September/October 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.2 (80 votes)

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



READER'S COMMENT:
"Quick and easy - I didn't have quite enough barley, so I topped it off with white rice, which worked great (I was afraid brown rice would need much longer to cook). Definitely a keeper! "

Delicious

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!

SO DELICIOUS!

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.

Easy to Prepare

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.

Quick and Easy
