Sweet and Spicy Barley
Ingredients
  • 1  medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 2  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 2/3  cup  regular barley
  • 1 14  ounce can  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 3/4  cups  water
  • 1/4  cup  uncooked brown rice
  • 1  tablespoon  small fresh thyme sprigs or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed
  • 1/2 - 1  teaspoon  finely chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 2  cups  torn fresh spinach
  • 1/3  cup  broken pecans or walnuts, toasted
Directions

1. In a large saucepan cook onion in hot oil over medium heat about 5 minutes or just until tender, stirring occasionally. Add barley; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until barley is starting to brown.

2. Carefully add broth, the water, brown rice, dried thyme (if using), and chipotle pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 45 minutes or until barley and rice are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
