If you prefer, replace the corn with other cooked vegetables, such as peas, green beans, zucchini, or mushrooms.

I made this as a side for dinner tonight. It. Was. Fantastic! And pretty simple to make! I was wondering what the calories are in one serving...?

Very good use of barley! Delicious!
This recipe is amazing! I used frozen peas instead of corn (it was a recommended substitute in the Everyday Food Book) and it was perfection. Barley is a whole grain, i.e. even better for you than rice, so this is not only delicious, it is healthy!! FYI, I used a homemade meat chicken stock that provided great flavor. Two cups of basil is a lot, but it gives this dish incredible freshness. High marks!!
A lighter version of risotto, especially when made with fresh corn off the cob! (I used 2 ears of fresh corn). Really simple to make, just takes time to stir so the barley can absorb the liquid. Used veg. broth (we're vegetarians), but iit is still very flavorful! I highly recommend!
