I don’t think that I ever tasted proper barley before. I know my mom uses it in Chinese soups, but I’ve never had it as a main. And oh, did I fall in love with my first barley meal!
This makes perfect use of cherry tomatoes from the backyard garden! And only with a handful of ingredients (barley, roasted tomatoes, oil, peas and 40 minutes for roasting), I had this several times throughout August.
I topped my salad with a sprinkle of dried chili pepper (just because I like the kick of heat), but it still tastes amazing without the chilies. (I didn’t make the salad dressing, it was flavourful as is.)
