Other Ways To Start Using Barley
Until I started experimenting with barley, the only thing I could think of to make was Beef with Barley soup. We’ve never gone ga ga over couscous or quinoa. I am not one to have lots of different grains on hand. At this point in our new, yet mature lifestyle, we know what we like and tend to use the same ingredients in different ways. Therefore, I am revisiting some recipes that use other gains and thinking why not sub in barley? What about using barley instead of rice? A nutritionist I know has always said rice does almost nothing for our bodies. I admit I have recalled her advice, although disregard as I tear the top off a sugar packet to eat the last of the white rice in those cute little asian bowls!
What about you…how do you use barley? Please share!
