From time to time I also make something else than cake, bun, cookies, jam and ice cream. I actually managed to cook a hot meal almost every day !
I have found this recipe on this barleyotto in the weekly magazine "Søndag" (issue 03/2016). For me this dish is almost like a Nordic version of risotto, as we not grow rice in Denmark, but barley can be grown in Danish soil.
Any leftovers of this dish can easily be reheated and served a few days later on a busy working day.
As this dish contains parsley and garlic this blog post is being shared with this blogging theme of Cooking with herbs focus anything goes.
