Barley will take 45 minutes to cook and the beans will take 1 hour. You can use the same pot but be weary of the timeline.
Toss in 2 cloves of garlic with the beans and barley.
Cook till done.
Once done rinse in a colander with cold water and then spread beans and barley onto a cold sheet tray to stop cooking quickest.
Sprinkle a light coat of turmeric and salt so the still warm ingredients will absorb the properties quickest.
