Mushroom Barley Soup is Good Food

Organic criminis and shiitakes from my CSA box


a brand new food processor (yippee)


tying to find more vegetarian recipes

= mushroom and barley soup

Meh --- boring but tasted perty darn good!

My recipe (adapted from two recipes combined):

6 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 white onion finely chopped

1 pound shiitakes mushrooms

1 pound crimini mushrooms finely chopped

1 tablespoons soy sauce

1 cup pearled barley

3 cups peeled and sliced carrots

½ cup sherry

9 cups vegetable stock (homemade –look out Martha!)

Sprig or two of fresh rosemary

Sprig or two of fresh thyme

1 Bay leaf

Salt n Pepper

Sautéed garlic, onions til soft. Added mushrooms and soy sauce. Added sherry then reduced until all liquid absorbed. Added barley, carrots, sherry, veggie stock, herbs and brought to a boil. Reduced heat and simmered covered 30 minutes. Served with Salmon and asparagus.

I’m now officially obsessed with looking at and taking pics of food. Food porn.

Up next: tomatillo salsa (mild because I’m a heat wimp).
