Expert Tips

  • Instant brown rice, can be substituted for the regular brown rice, add 1/3 cup instant brown rice 40 minutes after adding the barley.
  • To toast pecan halves, spread on cookie sheet; bake at 350°F. for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Or spread pecan halves in thin layer in microwave-safe pie pan. Microwave on High for 4 to 7 minutes or until golden brown, stirring frequently.
