1/10 tsp Black pepper (to taste)
1/3 cup Frozen green peas
1/8 tsp Kosher salt (divided)
2/3 medium leek(s) Leek (white and light green parts only)
2/3 tsp Lemon peel (zest)
2/3 tbsp Olive oil
1/8 cup Parsley, fresh (chopped)
1/3 cup Pearl barley, dry


In a medium saucepan, combine the barley, 3 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until the barley is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain off any remaining water in the pan and transfer the barley to a large bowl.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the leeks, season with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the peas and lemon zest and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and then fold the mixture into the barley.
