    Im thinking of replacing my normal brown rice with pearled barley, does it taste pretty good? Does anyone have recipes?

    It's a better flavour than brown rice, kind of nutty. I normally cook mine in vegetable or chicken stock to give it extra flavour. Bring to the boil and then simmer. Barley usually stays pretty chewy after cooking. Once cooked mix in a container with chicken, peas and sweetcorn. A great simple meal.

    My only experience with raw barley was back in my "homebrewing" days. I gotta tell you though, the end product tasted Great!!
