This is the least processed form of barley, with just the outermost hull removed. While it’s chewier and slower to cook than more processed forms of barley, it’s rich in fiber and really good for you. Look for it in health food stores. Substitutes: pot barley (less nutritious, better flavor and texture) OR pearl barley (even less nutritious, even better flavor and texture; smaller, cooks more quickly) OR barley grits (takes less time to cook) OR whole white buckwheat groats
