Sauteed mushrooms simmered with thyme and pressed barley make a quick pilaf.
  • 4 c. sliced fresh mushrooms (oyster, shiitake, button)
  • 1 T. olive or grapeseed oil
  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 c. chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 c. pressed barley
  1. Melt butter and oil in a medium sized pot on medium high heat. Add mushrooms and thyme. Stir and cook about ten minutes until the mushrooms are soft.
  2. Add broth. Turn heat up to high and bring to a boil. Stir in barley. Cover and turn heat down to low. Simmer about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally until barley is tender and all the liquid has been absorbed.
  3. Yields about 4-1/2 cups.
