Barley is one of my favourites and I try to use them in salads and casseroles . I use them to replace rice too. This one is like that and tastes amazing. You can serve this as a cold or a hot meal. After cooking barley , simply freeze them in individual containers or in bags for another day. You can take them to work and microwave to use a s a hot meal .
I always wash the barley several times and add water and leave to soak. (Remember you can cook with out soaking too.
After wash once and add water and cook until light and fluffy. You can add extra water and get barley water too.
I used pumpkin , Zucchini , capsicum and prawns. Dice the vegetables and wash the prawns.
Add salt and pepper to all of them and roast or grill them slightly.
After grilling the vegetables looks like this. Add some sultana to the vegetables to get a nice sweet taste.
Add some oil in to a pan and fry some onion and garlic and add the grilled vegetables stir well and add the barley. Stir fry one minute.
Serve hot or cold.
