Today’s post is from Gen:
What’s better than having a quick-cook grain on hand for an impromptu pot of hearty chicken soup with kale?
TJ’s new “10-Minute Barley” fits the bill. It’s washed, par-cooked and ready to go.
Only thing is, depending on your predisposition for “al dente” dining, “10 minutes” is more like 15.
Still, it’s a fine alternative to having to cook the raw grain for 40 minutes or more.
Note: Because the par-cooked variety is larger in size, 1 cup of the 10-minute variety is less than 1 cup of raw, uncooked barley, so take that into consideration when planning portions you’ll need.
Thank you, Gen!
Thank you, TJ’s.
