I didn't have a 13 x 9 pan handy when I made this, so I used a 2.5 qt extra casserole instead. Could not fit all the liquid into the casserole, so I started with 4 c. of broth, and then added more through the cooking time, to a total of 6 cups. There was still some liquid in the casserole when I pulled it out at the end of the cooking time, but almost all of it absorbed into the barley as it stood, covered, waiting for the rest of dinner to be ready (probably about 15 - 20 min). More liquid might be cooked off in the shallower pan, but I'd think there'd be even more trouble fitting everything in.
We served this alongside the Vegan Moroccan Couscous recipe from allrecipes, and everyone really liked it. I think this would also make a good side dish alongside a roast chicken or turkey, maybe in place of stuffing. We'll definitely be having this again.
