I attended a recipe demo at the Culinary Institute of America (St

  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 cups barley
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, optional
  • 1 cup parsley, minced
  • 1/2 cup basil, minced
  • 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 4 cups tomatoes (buy a colorful assortment of heirloom tomatoes, if you can)
  • 1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
  • OPTIONAL: 1/4 cup dry jack cheese, grated
  • NOTE: *I prefer to "chiffonade" the basil by stacking the leaves, rolling them and slicing very thin. I wait to do this, last, as basil can bruise and turn dark
  • the water is to add to the barley if the liquid dries up before it is cooked to "al dente" (slight crunch to it)
