Had some extra broccoli and decided to add with some barley, lemon and ginger. I love the nutty flavor of barley and with the lemon and ginger together in this dish made it a very tasty dish.

Fresh Ginger is so incredibly good for you and is very healing to the stomach as well. I am always drinking ginger and peppermint tea for their medicinal purposes.

Hope you enjoy.
