Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • To get your whole grain, you should eat hulled barley, since only the tough outer hulls are polished off. Pearl barley is polished some more, so that the outer bran layer is also scrubbed off. That means pearl barley is not a whole grain, so it doesnt offer as many health benefits.
  • For a complete meal, serve this casserole with baked chicken, turkey, or fish and a garden salad.
  • Add mushrooms or shredded carrots.
