So, what is mieži?

Mieži, also known as pearl barley, is a versatile and nutritious cereal grain that has been used in traditional cuisines for centuries. It is a good source of dietary fiber, protein, and vitamins B and E. Mieži has a slightly nutty flavor and a chewy texture that makes it perfect for soups, stews, salads, and side dishes. It can be cooked on its own or combined with other ingredients such as vegetables, meats, and spices to create hearty and flavorful meals. Mieži is also a popular ingredient in Eastern European and Scandinavian cuisines, where it is often used in porridges and baked goods.
