Look for quick-cooking barley next to the hot cereal in the supermarket.
Heat oil in a small saucepan over medium- high heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in cumin and next 4 ingredients; cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Add beans, broth, and barley; bring to a boil. Cover; reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Add red bell pepper; cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
