Barley is high in fibre and low on the glycemic index, making it a great substitute for the usual white rice used in pilaf. Try this side dish with a roast instead of potatoes or rice.
Hearty Mushroom Barley Pilaf
Scalloped One Potato, Two Potato
Scalloped potatoes are an all-time favourite. Sweet and white potatoes combine in this update of a dish that’s usually high in fat. We used stock instead of cream to reduce the fat.

Tofu Vegetable Lasagna
Lasagna makes a hearty main course. The fussy part is always the layering- the preparation for this meatless version is easy, and once it’s in the oven, you can put your feet up!
Wild Mushroom Barley Risotto with Scallops
This woodsy risotto would be at home on the menu of a gourmet restaurant. Barley gives a chewier, less creamy risotto than does rice.
