Barley with Chives

Total time: 20 minutes
     Barley is not just for soup!  It's a hearty, nutritious grain; easy to cook and flavorful.  I get the quick-cooking barley which takes about 15 minutes.  Cooked in chicken stock and finished with a bit of oil and fresh herbs, it's chewy texture is a fun change from rice or pasta.
