1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1/2 cup uncooked barley

3 (14.5-ounce) cans low-sodium chicken broth

2 large sprigs fresh dill, if desired

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill  

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cover; cook over low heat 1 hour or until barley is tender. Remove dill sprigs; stir in chopped dill, salt and pepper.
