  2. Barley, the oldest cultivated grain, is grown all over the world, in climates as varied as the Arctic Circle and the tropics. Although we are most familiar with barley as an ingredient in soup, it is an excellent grain for a vegetarian main course. It is high in protein and soluble fiber, as well as a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. It is also extremely satisfying and delicious.

  4. Add in the carrots and celery and cook, stirring frequently, for another 5 min.
  5. 2. Add in the vegetable broth or possibly water and bring to a boil. Stir in the barley and salt, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook, covered, for 30 min. Stir in the spinach and peas, cover, and cook for another 15 min.
  6. 3. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 - 10 min. Stir in the butter and Parmesan cheese. Season with freshly grnd black pepper to taste and serve.
