Tired of rice?  Quinoa old news?  Bust out the barley with my list of barley recipes, seven delicious ways!

Barley rocks!  It’s nutty and chewy and has lots of fiber and niacin – a B vitamin that can help prevent cardiovascular disease.  For you Mila lovers out there – these are perfect recipes to sprinkle a tablespoon on just before you eat your serving. Not only will this keep you regular but these slow burning carbohydrates will keep your energy up and keep you fuller longer – aiding in weight loss.

Here are seven of ways to eat this hearty grain with both vegan and vegetarian options (in no particular order – these are all number one in my book).
