OK, I love barley. I just made a quick beef barley vegetable soup a few days ago with leftover pot roast. Mom will get some packaged up in containers for her freezer.
But how else do you use barley other than in soup? I've seen a couple of recipes for a barley risotto, including a barley butternut squash risotto I might make this weekend.
I've seen it for salads as well, although they seem more summery to me, like a couscous salad.
How else do you use it? Any favorite recipes?
