Barley is a wonderful grain that is totally underestimated nowadays. It has a chewy texture and it can be used in a various number of ways, from salads to soups. There are two types of barley: hulled and pearled barley. Hulled barley is the most nutritious of the two, containing lots of fiber, selenium, manganese and phosphorus.
How It’s Made?
Step 1: Dice the onion and slice the carrot.
Step 2: Heat the olive oil in a pan and cook the onion and the carrot for about 5 minutes or until the onion becomes translucent.
Step 3: Give the barley a quick rinse under running water to wash away any dust or debris.
Step 4: Add the barley into the pan and cook it for 2 minutes. Add the glass of wine and mix well.
Step 5: When the barley has reached a boil, add water and simmer on low heat until the barley is done (30 minutes). The barley is done when it has tripled in volume and is soft yet chewy.
Step 6: Add fresh dill, salt and pepper and serve immediately.
