It is easy to incorporate whole grains in baked goods. This month I have been trying to use them in more creative ways. Here is a recipe I tried this week that my family just loved! But what’s not to love about barley in soup?
1 Onion, chopped
4 stalks Celery, diced
1 Cup of chopped greens (we used spinach)
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms sliced
1/4 Soy Sauce
1/2 Cup Organic hulled Barley
In large pot combine the onion, celery, garlic and mushrooms and saute in oil for 5 minutes. Add barley and soy sauce, and 5 Cups of Water.
Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Salt to taste, Pepper too if you like!
Serve with a good homemade crusty bread…yum!
