This recipe takes the classic flavors of pasta with cacio e pepe and substitutes nutty, wholesome barley instead, topping it off with a simple tenderloin steak and a dollop of watercress pesto.

Toasted barley and wilted kale served with lemon zest, cheese, and baked eggs, all cooked in a single skillet.
An easy and hearty vegetarian soup with vegetables, escarole, and barley, all flavored with rosemary, parmesan, and olive oil.
Portobello mushrooms are often disparaged as an easy, boring stand-in for meat when cooking vegetarian meals. Among the all of the bland mushroom "burgers," it's easy to forget one of the portobello's most useful characteristics—its stuffability. Take, for instance, the stuffed mushrooms from Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi's Ottolenghi cookbook.
Barley is a great substitute for oatmeal in a hearty porridge. Give it flavor with brown sugar and cinnamon, then add chopped walnuts, heavy cream, or fresh fruit.
Creamy pearled barley served with braised broccoli and cherry tomatoes, topped with crumbled salty feta cheese.
Rich broth filled with bite-sized pieces of root vegetable and tender lamb, this hearty soup is much more than the name 'broth' implies. The essential elements of a scotch broth are lamb, barley, and root vegetables of various kinds, although many will include cabbage in that list as well. To me, Scotch broth is a root vegetable-based dish, with enough chunks of tender lamb to make it exciting, and a broth that is rich and flavorful.

This salad is made from French Puy lentils and barley dressed with fresh thyme, lemon, and tapenade, and tossed with parsley and scallions. It goes perfectly with roast salmon, my virtuous food.
The similarity to risotto with this dish is mostly related to the cooking method—toasting the grains in fat, letting them absorb some wine, then adding stock little by little until the grains have become tender and released their starch into the pot to turn everything creamy. It tastes nothing like a traditional risotto, but that doesn't mean this isn't a brilliant dish.
Short rib and barley stew is fantastic because it: a) is dumb easy to do b) is made with pantry and fridge staples (aside from the short rib) c) lasts for days and gets better with time d) soothes the soul or warms the cockles of your heart, or if you're really lucky, both at the same time, and e) tastes really, really good.
For this loaf, I used a pale chocolate malt. The grains smelled a bit like chocolate with a hint of coffee. One of my previous loaves used a darker roasted malt called Pearl Black that smelled very much like roasted coffee and had a much stronger flavor in the finished loaf. If you don't have dark malted barley, you could simply leave it out and use this recipe to make a standard rye. It will be a lot paler, and not as complex, but still a nice loaf of rye.
Most barley soup recipes have a heavy helping of beef, which might have been really wonderful in mid-January. But now with spring around the corner, I was looking for something a tad lighter. Thankfully cabbage and spinach get the job done here. They bulk it out, making it a filling soup without being a heavy or meaty one.

"Melt the butter and sauté the onions and mushrooms until soft. Add the barley and brown it lightly." These two sentences raise so many questions for an inexperienced cook with OCD: how high should the flame be? How long might...

Think "barley," and the first thing that comes to my mind is usually feed for livestock—I don't even consider it under the header of "whole grains," which I equate with oats or whole wheat, and I'm sure I can't be...
The flavor of barley works especially well with mushrooms. I like asparagus in this, too, but it's out of season; if you want to get your greens on, throw in a few fist fulls of rinsed, fresh spinach during the...
