Grilled Vegetables Over Barley With Feta and Basil

Grilled Vegetables Over Barley With Feta and Basil
Makes: 6  servings Prep 25 mins Cook 45 mins to 1 hr


  • 1 cup  pearl barley
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons  honey
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon  kosher salt plus additional for seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon  chili powder
  • 1/2 cup  extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ears corn broken in half, husks removed
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded and quartered
  • 12 whole button mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons  chopped fresh basil
  • 1/3 cup  crumbled feta


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the barley and boil until tender but slightly chewy, 45 minutes to 1 hour; drain.

2. In a bowl, whisk together the lime juice, honey, garlic, salt, black pepper and chili powder. Whisk in the oil; reserve 1/3 of the dressing for the barley.

3. Brush the ears of corn with dressing. Toss the bell peppers and mushrooms with remaining dressing.

4. Preheat a grill to medium-high. Season the vegetables lightly with salt; grill, turning occasionally, until tender and lightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes a side.

5. Toss barley with 1 tablespoon of the basil and the reserved dressing. Spoon onto serving plates and top with vegetables. Sprinkle with remaining basil and the feta.
