EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Barley is loaded with fiber—the soluble kind that helps to lower blood cholesterol. If you're trying to add more fiber to your diet start slowly so your body can get used to it.

Try a can of seasoned diced tomatoes which includes Italian herbs or roasted garlic, for an additional boost of flavor.

This hearty stew pairs beautifully with any mixed greens and crusty whole-grain rolls.
