This is a very tasty way to serve a very healthy grain that is often overlooked. I never use the mushrooms as I don't care for them and often add chopped carrots, red pepper, or grated zucchini.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 ribs celery, chopped

  • 1 cup pearl barley

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms (Optional)

  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Melt butter in a 1 1/2-quart Dutch oven or oven-safe pot over medium heat and cook onion until lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add celery and cook until starting to soften, stirring often, about 5 more minutes. Mix barley into the vegetables and stir until coated with butter. Fold mushrooms and green pepper into barley mixture; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Pour chicken broth into barley mixture and bring to a boil; cover casserole dish.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until barley is nearly tender, about 30 minutes; uncover casserole dish and bake barley until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 more minutes. Adjust salt and black pepper before serving.
