Default Wave 2 - Barley Primavera

Made this yesterday. Really yummy side dish makes about 6 servings

2.5 - 3 cups low fat, low sodium chicken broth - the recipe calls for 4 but the first time I made this is was FAR too much. I used about 3 this time
2 cloves garlic, minced - used more of course
1/2 cup red onion, minced
1/2 cup diced carrots - can omit this to make Wave 1 friendly
1 cup pearl barley
1/2 cup diced zucchini - used more
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste

I added some cumin and cayenne pepper as I think this is bland without some more seasonings.

1. Heat 1/4 cup of the broth in a saucepan over medium high heat. Add the garlic and onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add the carrots and saute for 5 minutes.
2. Add the remaining broth and bring to a boil. Add the barley, lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the liquid is almost absorbed, about 50 minutes.
3. Add the zucchini, parsley, oil, and lemon juice. Simmer for 5 more minutes; season with salt and pepper.

**I think mine took closer to an hour to cook** You
