A dish that was ordered for lunch today was described as “accompanied by rice”. This is quite obviously not rice. The colour is of course provided by a sauce. This was takeout so it was not a matter of asking the server. Hoping somebody here can identify it. I am not a green eater.

How did it taste? These grains look nice and distinct...sometimes when I've made barley it all clumps together in a soft mash, maybe too much water..

Well it didn’t convert me! But @Kerry Bealenjoyed it.
