Make sure the barley doesn't dry during cooking, topping up with a bit more water if needed.
Sprinkle with more chopped mint and serve with a mixed salad.
this is my favourite recipe on the whole website. its especially yummy with halloumi. (made with spicy parsnip soup instead of pea and ham to make it vegetarian. also used edamame beans instead of peas) - 03 Jun 2017
