Heat butter and saute onions, carrots and celery for about five minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic. Continue to saute for 3-5 minutes. Add in water, broth (I used water and vegetarian boullion to create broth), and barley. Bring to a boil and then turn it down and simmer for 45-50 minutes or until the barley is soft. Add salt and pepper to taste. (If you use boullion, skip the salt!)

Nutritional value is based on six one-cup+ sized servings. You can easily get eight servings from this.

  • This is fabulous! I added a handful of frozen peas and a dash of lite Soy Sauce for an extra "zing". Add 1/2 can of evap skim milk for a creamy consistency (adjust calories & nutrient content). - 7/16/11

  • This is one of our all-time favorite recipes! I'd never added garlic before, great idea! We used all broth, no water & definitely skipped the salt! Very flavorful, dh didn't even add pepper ;-) We used large white mushrooms and cut them in half and kept the onions chunky. The kids even loved it! - 4/9/11

  • YUM! I love this. Hearty, filling, and for a mushroom lover like me, you can't go wrong with this! I didn't have celery on hand so I made it without, and I'm not quite sure what 20 oz of mushrooms looks like so I used two large portobello caps. Adding this to my favorites. :) - 2/15/11
