Indonesian Barley Pilaf

I got this recipe from Kashi and just modified it a bit for what I had on hand. It's quicky, healthy and delicious.

1 cup barley

2 cups water (or chicken broth)
1 cup whole peanuts
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoons cumin
3/4 cup raisins
1 large carrot julienned
1 cup red cabbage diced (optional- I didn't use)
pinch of salt
red bell pepper, diced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
4 tablespoons soy sauce (I usually pour it on until everything is light brown)
2 teaspoons fresh ginger root, grated
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes (more or less depending on how spicy you want it)

Cook barley in water according to directions (usually takes about 35-40 minutes). In large sauce pan saute garlic, onion and pepper in sesame oil (or other oil). Add remaining ingredients and simmer 2-3 minutes. Stir in barley and serve.
