    1/2 med. onion, chopped
    1 celery ribs, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 medium red bell pepper, diced
    1 cup pearl barley
    2 teaspoons low-sodium instant chicken bouillon granules
    2 cups water
    1/4 teaspoon thyme
    3 teaspoons canola oil
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Freshly ground pepper, to taste
    Balsamic vinegar (optional)


Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add onion and celery and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add barley, garlic, red pepper, thyme and cook, stirring, for 30 to 60 seconds. Pour in water (2 cups if using quick-cooking barley, 4 cups if using pearl barley) add oxo and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer over low heat until the barley is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes for quick-cooking barley or about 45 minutes for pearl barley. Season with balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
