I made this recipe to add fiber to my families diet and my husband loved it. I recommend this recipe for everyone.

I love the taste of cooked whole barley, so this recipe appealed to me. But, good grief!, it was waaay too involved and time-consuming for what it was. I just used the ingredients as a guideline, and prepared the whole thing in my rice cooker. Delicious, and took only a few minutes of prep time and about 55 minutes in the steamer. MUCH easier!

I love this recipe. I left out the cheese to make it healthier, and it was wonderful.
