“This earthy and slightly sweet-tasting grain is one of the oldest cultivated,” says Amidor. “It is an excellent source of fiber, providing 24% of your daily recommended amount in 1 cup cooked. Barley also contains beta-glucans, which have been shown to help lower cholesterol and help your immune system.” Use barley in place of pasta in dishes like soup. It’s a less-processed, whole-grain alternative, but still provides the same experience. If you need some inspiration, try this veggie-filled mushroom barley soup from Kashi.
