Barley Bake

I'm adding this by request, although it's very simple and I don't have a photo of it yet. It's great for using up whatever you have in the kitchen, and offers a wholesome, hearty, and warming meal. I like to serve a green vegetable on the side as well.


  • onion
  • mushrooms
  • pearl barley (I use about 2 cups.)
  • red pepper
  • broccoli
  • chicken broth
  • milk 
  • flour
  • cheese - cheddar, parmesan, or whatever is on hand


  1. Cook barley in chicken broth (for about an hour).
  2. Sauté diced veggies. 
  3. Add sautéed veggies to barley, and pour in some milk and a tablespoon of flour.
  4. Add some grated cheese (I use 1/2 cup or more).
  5. Grease baking dish, and pour mix into dish. Top with parmesan or other cheese.
  6. Bake at 375 for about 20 minutes.
