Barley 'Risotto' Style, with Green Garlic

Total time: 25 minutes
     We try to eat a variety of grains.  I have always loved barley in soup...why not as a side dish?  If you don't have it or like it, substitute Orzo, everything else the same.  My barley cooks in 15 minutes, check your package and increase cooking time if needed.
