Barley Casserole

Submitted by: PSYCHNRSJEN

Introduction

Barley is a Canadian grain that bakes up like a dream and is a perfect partner to any stew. Here, accented with vegetables and pine nuts/almonds, it's a particularly nice change from the usual rice.
A Wonderful Ukrainian lady I work with made this and I just couldn't get enough!!! It's super filling and makes a great veggie lunch or side dish.
