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).
