French Fridays with Dorie: (sort of) lemon barley pilaf

Ok, ok, sorry. Another French Fridays with Dorie recipe that I seem to have freestyled. It was supposed to be Lemon Barley Pilaf (p 383) which I was pretty happy about but the day I came to cook it, I realised I had a lovely box of  wheat grains (wheat berries, couscous and bulgur wheat) […]
