Recipe: Barley with Walnuts and Bacon

Barley with Walnuts and Bacon
Food and Wine Magazine, p. 44
3.5 stars

We made this dish because, frankly, we had all of the ingredients in the house and needed dinner!  It's a solid, flavorful and filling dish -- more of a "peasant" dish than something gourmet that I'd serve to friends.

Also, it's quite easy to make with only 9 ingredients.  As noted in the recipe (see link above), this is a very hearty grain dish which can stand alone or be an accompaniment to a dish like roast chicken.

Ingredients:  pearled barley, bacon, onion, carrot, celery, garlic, chicken broth, toasted walnuts, extra-virgin olive oil

  • Added thyme and red pepper as well as some salt
  • Next time, we'll try farro instead of barley
