- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp brown mustard
- 3 Tbs olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 1/2 red onion

- 2 2/3 cups vegetable broth
- 2/3 cup pearl barley

- Preheat oven to 350° F. Peel onion half and coat with oil. Place on baking sheet and roast until tender, about 30 minutes. Chop coarsely.
- In a medium pot, bring broth to a boil and add barley. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until barley is tender (35 to 40 minutes). Drain any excess liquid; spread barley on a baking sheet to cool.
