Quick Easy Healthy I loved this! I love barley and didn't know what to use it in other than soup so I'm glad I found this. I subbed in chickpeas for the beans and then added fresh tomatoes in at the end and it was great.
Barley Hoppin' John I was pleasantly surprised with this recipe! I thought that it wouldn't have enough flavor but the seasonings were perfect. The lemon juice is a must-have. I couldn't find quick-cooking barley so I used regular and added a little bit more broth and cooked it for longer and it turned out great. My toddler licked his plate and had 3 servings and my husband had 2 servings and said he really liked it. Will definitely make it again!
I used brown rice instead of barley so the broth needed was per the brown rice instructions. I doubled the amount of thyme lemon juice and red pepper flakes and used only one can of rinsed black beans. Another keeper.
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. Pros: You have most ingredients on hand Cons: None
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!
