1. PLEASE NOTE: This recipe requires 2-3 hours of marinating that is not reflected in the prep time.

2. Combine 1/2 tsp. of olive oil, lime juice, thyme and 1/8 tsp. of pepper to make marinade.

3. Roll pork loin in marinade and thoroughly coat. Allow pork loin to marinate, preferably overnight or at least 2-3 hours, in the refrigerator.

4. Preheat oven to 325°F.

5. To prepare the roasted vegetables, combine all cut vegetables, beans and spices in a large bowl. Add 1/2 tsp. of olive oil and combine evenly.

6. Lay out mixture on a cookie sheet. Roast in oven for 20-25 minutes, until cooked and slightly brown on edges.

7. Remove pork from marinade and place on a sheet pan lightly coated with cooking spray. Place pork in oven as well and cook for 20-25 minutes.

8. In the meantime, heat 1/2 tsp. of oil over medium heat in a heavy pan. Add barley and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often. The barley will start to brown and give off a nutty aroma.

9. Add green onions to barley and stir. Cook for 2 minutes. Next, add mushrooms; stir in well. Cook until mushrooms begin to wilt.

10. Add the chicken broth and 1/4 tsp. of pepper. Stir well.

11. Turn down heat to simmer and cover. Continue to cook until all liquid is absorbed.

12. Serve pork with a side of barley pilaf and roasted vegetables.
