Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 tbsp. chopped, dried shiitake mushrooms (about 2)
1/2 cup water for soaking mushrooms
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup chopped onion (1 small)
4 (or more) fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup thinly sliced carrot (about 1 carrot)
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup pearled barley
2 tbsp. flour
3 cups water or vegetable stock
1/2 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste


Directions

Soak shiitake mushrooms in 1/2 cup water for 10 minutes. Chop shiitakes and reserve soaking water.


Heat oil in 3 or 4 quart pot over medium heat. Add shiitake mushrooms, onions, fresh mushrooms, carrots, celery, and barley. Sautée on meduim-low heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent burning.


Add flour and stir continuously for 1 minute. Add 3 cups stock (or water) and soaking liquid. Scrape the bottom of the pot. Stir about 1 minute.


Add salt then bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 45 minutes, or until barley is tender, stirring occasionally.
