I'm only giving this a 3 because my mom loved it! It was very bland and I didn't like the yellow pepper but that's because I don't really care for peppers. Don't think I'll try it again, sorry : (

Reading the recipe, and a few other barley and vegetable containing recipes, I anticipated that it might be a bit on the bland side, as a number of the reviews stated. I used 2 cups of vegetable broth and one cup of water to cook the barley, and I also added a bit of garlic powder just before it was done. I really enjoyed this recipe. It was very filling. It was by first barley cooking experience, and despite reading that the recipe served 6, I must stay I was pretty surprised how much food I ended up with! Hopefully it keeps well, I'll be happy to have leftovers tomorrow!

I thought this recipe was bland and just generally lacking. Friends and boyfriend agree with this assessment. However it is healthy and my vegetarian daughter liked it and ate the entire casserole. Update. I made some changes, I use a 28 ounce can of tomatoes, add a bit of basil about 2 tsp and oregano, about 1 tsp and 1/2 tsp of thyme. At the end I add parsley oh and I boil the barley in broth. Everyone likes these changes. I still don't love it but I eat it and my daughter is still crazy about it.

This was okay. Looked attractive with the different colours but just tasted bland.

I'm not exactly sure this recipe should be in the Soup collection; however, I very much like the flavor and textures. It is a very dry, thick stew - I ate it with a fork - but I don't know that I'd want more liquid in it. If you like these ingredients, you will most definitely like this recipe! (Note: I did spice it up a bit with jalapeno slices and Tabasco sauce.)

This was a good filling and healthy meal. Very easy to prepare. I would perhaps experiment to spice it up a bit more next time - but overall a great recipe that I will keep on hand. Thanks.
