Lemon Barley Pilaf

Usually I don’t like to share recipes that haven’t been 100% approved by the whole family but sometimes I’ll make the exception when I think it’s a great dish. I love this Lemon Barley Pilaf, the flavour was great and I loved the texture the pearl barley brings. Husband wasn’t a fan mainly because of the pearl barley but said the flavour was great so that’s still a win in my book. It makes for a great change from rice or potatoes as a side dish or add some cooked chicken for an easy, summery main meal.

    Just bought a cook processor yesterday and was a bit perplexed about what to cook but found your blog and am saved! Love pearl barley, especially in salads with nuts and lentils added.
