5 Best Barley Recipes

September 14, 2011

Barley is making a comeback in our kitchens.  This grain has a nutty flavor and is cooked in boiling water.  These are five of my favorite barley recipes.

Chicken with Barley, Cranberries and Pine Nuts
If you cannot find pine nuts or they are too expensive, substitute with walnuts.

Beef and Barley Soup
This comforting soup is perfect on a cool day.

Mushroom and Barley Salad
A healthy salad made with grilled mushrooms, zucchini, and red onion.

Roasted Pumpkin Barley Risotto
This recipe uses barley instead of the usual short grain rice to make risotto.

Chicken Barley Chili
No chili is complete without a side of cornbread.
