I am trying out e-Mealz new Whole Foods plan, and this recipe was on our menu last week.  It is delicious and inexpensive.  We all enjoyed it and plan to make it again.



Mushroom Barley Soup

1 c. barley
4 c. water
1.5 Tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 c. chopped onion
1 carrot, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 – 8 oz. packages button mushrooms, sliced
3 – 15 oz. cans chicken broth (I used homemade)
1 tsp. thyme

-Heat oil in a large saucepan ; add salt, pepper, onion, carrot and celery.  Cook until tender

-Add mushrooms and cook 5 minutes
