Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Barley is a complete healthy package of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Barley claim's to be an excellent source of molybdenum, manganese, dietary fiber, and selenium, and a good source of copper, vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin. Adding veggies to it increases the fiber and vitamin content. Lemon juice is an extremely rich source of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant. Lemon barley pilaf is a complete health-packed recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Barley (raw) - 1 tbsp 
  • Onion, finely chopped - 1 small
  • Vegetable broth/ plain water - 1cup
  • Bay leaf - 1
  • Mixed veggies - ½ cup
  • Grated lemon peel - 1 tsp
  • Oil -  ½ tsp
  • Salt - to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 Add oil in a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat.  Step 2 Add onion, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Saute until onion is beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add barley, cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add broth and bay leaf; bring to boil. Step 3 Reduce heat to low, stir once, and cover. Cook until barley is almost tender, about 15 minutes. Add mixed veggies, cover and cook until vegetables are tender about 6 minutes.  Step 4 Remove pilaf from heat and stir. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf.  Step 5 Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in lemon peel and serve.
