1-2 teaspoons curry powder
1 cup pearl barley
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth/stock

2. Stir in barley and vegetable broth/stock; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Pour barley mixture into large baking dish or casserole. (can be prepared in advance up until this point)

I liked this dish as well.  I did add some salt and pepper, just a personal thing. It was still a great dish,  like the idea of using strips of chicken style gluten to make it truly a meal.  In will be making this again at some point.  


It's all about the apple - nice touch!


This was good and a nice change of pace from brown rice.  I did the first part of the recipe in a cast iron skillet and instead of pouring it into another dish for baking, I just put the lid on the skillet and baked it in that.  I think next time I make it I'm going to add some strips of chicken style gluten to make it more of a main dish than a side.  I liked it.  ;)b
