This is a perfect recipe for a busy day, just put all the ingredients all together, pop it in the oven and let the oven do all the work.

I decided to make it with barley. Barley is a great choice of food for many reasons, it is rich in many beneficial nutrients, reduces hunger and may help you lose weight, may help prevent gallstones, may reduce heart disease risk (healthline.com).
I noticed when I eat barley I feel less hungry and more fuller afterwards. Barley really satisfies the hunger. If you want to make more, just double the recipe.
