  1. Heat the oil in a large pan set over a medium heat. Add the leek and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the barley and stock and bring to a simmer. Cook, partially covered, for 30 minutes, or until the barley is tender. Scoop off any froth from the surface with a spoon.
