Butternut & Barley Pilaf

December 2005/January 2006

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (98 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. "

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.

Sounds great. How about adding 3/4 cup of pinto beans and serve cold for a quick summer dinner? I use leftover by adding something to the original that makes a complete yet nutritious meal.

This came out terrific. I substituted cilantro for parsley and didn't have any lemon zest and it still came out beautiful. Was almost creamy and wonderful for a cold, wet winter night.
