Black Bean & Barley Burrito
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a small pot on the stove, bring 2/3 cup water to a boil. Stir in barley, cover, and turn heat to low. Simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, roast almonds.
Stir together beans, barley, cheese, almonds and cilantro in a medium bowl. Place 1 cup of this mixture in the center of each tortilla, and roll up burrito style.* Brush each burrito with water and place in a greased 8- by 9-inch baking dish. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. Serve with fresh avocado slices or guacamole and salsa.
*At this point, burritos may be wrapped individually in foil and refrigerated or frozen for later reheating. To reheat a thawed burrito, bake in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes.
