  1. Barley-Mushroom Stew

  2. Serves 4. 1 cup barley

  3. 1 lb crimini mushrooms

  4. 2/3 cup lentils

  5. 4 cups mushroom stock

  6. 2 large sprigs thyme

  7. 2 cups water

  8. Set the barley in the mushroom stock and bring to a slow simmer.

  9. Simmer about 1 hour, or until most of the water has been absorbed.

  10. If the mushrooms are large, cut them into chunks about 1/2' on a

  11. side and add. If small, simply stir them in at this point. Add the

  12. lentils and the water and continue simmering until a similar point,

  13. where most of the water has been absorbed. Add the thyme and keep

  14. simmering until the stew is creamy (this should be no more than

  15. 5 minutes later

  16. Note: You can also use fresh peas instead of lentils, and if so

  17. omit the extra water and add the peas at the same time as the thyme.
