This is great in the summer to use up any rocket, watercress or herbs that need a trim. Anything can go in, but if you use kale or chard, you’ll need to remove anything woody and blanch briefly beforehand.

METHOD

Cook the pearl barley as normal, sometimes I add a teaspoon of bouillon powder for flavour.

Heat seeds in a dry pan for a few minutes on a low heat until they slightly change colour.

Wash all the green stuff and chop it a bit.

Drain pearl barley and add a good glug of olive oil, squeeze of lemon, lots of parmesan, salt n pepper and taste it. This should taste good, if not add more parmesan and seasoning.
