Tasty Tuesday: Barley Casserole

Please don't run away just from the title of this recipe! 

Whew... if you're still here, we ate Barley Casserole last night. This was a first for us, and both of us (especially Javier) loved it! It's an extremely inexpensive recipe, and barley seems to be a super healthy food.

3 T. butter
1 small onion, diced
1/2 small green pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 c. pearled barley (find this near the dried beans in the grocery store)
3 c. chicken broth, heated
salt & pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Melt butter in saucepan, saute onion, pepper, and garlic until soft.
3. Spray ovenproof casserole with non-stick spray.
4. Transfer veggie mixture into casserole.
5. Add the barley, then heated broth, making sure to coat grains well.
6. Season to taste with salt & pepper and bake covered for 1 hour.
