Toasted Barley Pilaf With Pecans And Mushrooms

Recipe Description
Are we afraid of fat?  Consider pecans.  Like most nuts, they are very high in fat, although they are low in saturated fat, and rich in vitamins and minerals.  The key is to eat them in small amounts.  In this recipe, two tablespoons helps flavor four servings.  That's enough to impart a lovely flavor without much fat.  Comfort without guilt.  Toasting barley, by the way, enhances both taste and texture.
