Tired of rice? Bored with bulgur? Swap one of your usual go-to whole grains with nutty-tasting, nutrient-packed organic hulled barley.
Harvested from the husk-covered ears of the barley plant, a type of grass, barley is hulled to remove its tough, inedible outer coating. What remains are tiny, light-colored kernels, with much of their natural bran intact – meaning they’re bursting with fiber and phytonutrients.
Not quick-cooking like other forms of barley, hulled barley is worth the nearly hour-long wait. Each ¼-cup serving packs in 8 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein, plus essential vitamins and minerals.

Rinse first, then combine one cup of hulled barley with 3-1/2 cups of water in a large pot. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour, or longer for softer texture. If all the water hasn’t been absorbed, remove from heat, cover and let sit for 10 minutes. For extra flavor, try cooking hulled barley in stock or broth instead of water.
