The amounts are not specific, but use any veg you like and you could very well add some meat or chicken if you so wished.

Heat the olive oil in a flat pan or large saucepan. Gently fry the onions until translucent then add the garlic, thyme and spices. Fry for a few minutes before adding the rest of the veggies. Fry these for about 5 minutes; you don’t want them too soft. Add the barley and mix through. Add the stock, cover lightly with some foil or a lid and cook for about 10 minutes. Season to taste.
