Barley has been enjoyed since the Stone Age in everything from cereals and breads to soups and pilafs. When malted, it even serves as an integral ingredient in beer and whiskey. In this recipe, the chewy grain bulks up this veggie bowl and serves as the base for crispy roasted Brussels sprouts, crunchy pepitas, sweet cranberries, and tangy feta.


Produced in a facility that processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybean.
