Barley Mushroom Casserole (Vegan) Recipe
1 cup chopped onions
2 cup sliced mushrooms
2 package instant broth/season
2 1/2 cup water
1 salt and pepper, to taste
5 1/4 oz barley, 3/4 cup
Add your favorite spice to this casserole, if you wish. Try 1/2
teaspoon of either curry powder, basil, oregano, dill or thyme or
enjoy it as it is with the delicious subtle flavor of mushrooms. In a
medium saucepan over medium heat cook onions & mushrooms till tender
about 10 min adding small amounts of water if necessary to prevent
drying. Add broth mix, water and salt & pepper and bring to a boil.
Stir in barley, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 50min until
barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir occassionally while
cooking and add more water if necessary. Note: I eliminated the 2T+2t
of reduced calorie margarine to reduce the 5g per serving of fat in
the original recipe.
