Looking for an easy way to add fiber and flavor to your favorite entrees? Try a bed of barley.

For a fiber-rich alternative to rice or noodles, serve suppertime favorites such as Oriental stir-fry, stroganoff or even Italian meat sauce over a bed of steaming hot pearl barley. And to cut down on last-minute preparations, cook a batch of barley ahead of time, place in an airtight container and refrigerate or freeze for up to a week. Then just heat and serve with your favorite meat or vegetable topping. Enjoy!
