    Well given food prices are rocketing I tried using barley instead of Arborio rice. It was a success, filling, healthy and still really yummy! NOTE: This is very filling and quite rich in flavour. So I sometimes serve half portions with some nice green beans or other summer Veg/green salad. It keeps in the refrigerator great in an air tight container or ziplock bag. It tastes great the next day cold or re-heated and so we take the leftovers for filling lunch at work.

    Juniper berries give this beef stew dish a distinctive flavour. The beef is slowly simmered until meltingly tender, while nourishing pot barley soaks up some of the juices and thickens the rich gravy to make a hearty casserole. Serve with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable such as French beans or spring greens.

    This soup is delicious, hearty and packed full of flavour. Beef is pan-seared, then popped into a slow cooker with beef stock, vegetables, parsley and pearl barley. Enjoy this soup during the cold winter months.

    A super-easy baked barley dish. Pearl barley is baked with sauteed onion, spring onions, pine nuts, mushrooms and parsley. Serve as a wonderful side dish with whatever you fancy.

    We think of barley as a soup ingredient, but it's also a delicious main-dish grain, served hot or cold. When combined with black beans, tomato and avocado, it adds up to a salad that could hardly be more healthy or delicious.
