Both brown rice and barley are good sources of protective soluble fiber, and the textures of the two grains make them a most pleasing combination. Enjoy this recipe as a warm breakfast cereal topped with fresh fruit. Alternatively, serve it as a side dish or add it to soups and salads.
  Brown rice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Pearl barley 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Not Quick Cooking Variety)
  Water/Vegetable broth 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch

Combine the rice and barley in a strainer. Rinse under cold water and drain. Transfer to a saucepan and place over medium heat. Stir constantly until the grains are dry and have a nutty fragrance. Remove from the heat and allow the pan to cool slightly.

Stir in the water and salt. Bring to a very low simmer, cover, and cook over low heat for about 50 minutes, until the grains are tender and all of the water has been absorbed.

Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Brown Rice and Barley will keep for up to 3 days.
