Butternut & Barley Pilaf

December 2005/January 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (92 votes)

Winter squash contributes a rich, full flavor to a simple barley pilaf. Gremolata, an Italian mixture of parsley, lemon zest and garlic, gives the dish a lively finish. The pilaf is an excellent accompaniment to chicken and pork, but would stand on its own with the addition of Parmesan.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I love barley and butternut, so this is lovely. My husband doesn't like barley, so I make it often using quinoa instead - equally delicious. "

Not bad, followed recipe as written, used vegetable bouillon, a little bland, could use a twist, maybe Indian spices?

I couldn't find any butternut, so I used zucchini. Wow! My husband, who doesn't like any kind of squash, loved it and wants more. A very versatile recipe. Oh, I also skipped the lemon zest.

Excellent dish. I love the brightness the lemon and parsley add. I took the suggestion to add beans so I threw in some canellinis to make it a meal. I also added an additional two cups of butternut squash and a full cup of parsley.

Good recipe overall. I substituted lime juice for the lemon juice and did not use zest. Next time I would double the garlic and substitute cilantro for the parsley as Mindi recommended.
