Ingredients Serving: 2

  1. Pearl barley- 1/2 cup
  2. 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  3. 1 small onion diced
  4. 2 big garlic cloves minced
  5. parsley to garnish
  6. evoo 2 tbsp,
  7. 2 tsp cream

  9. salt and pepper to taste
  10. flavoured stock as required


  1. Take pan heat evoo and add minced garlic and diced onion. Cook till translucent.
  2. Add chopped mushrooms and saute over high heat, I like the caramelization on mushrooms that's why I crank up the heat, now add veggie stock around 2 cups
  3. Add barley and let it simmer over medium heat, after 15 mins or so check if barley is "al dente" and not runny in consistency, if it is still not cooked then let it simmer for another 5-7 mins. once done add salt, pepper to taste, cream and cheese
  4. Garnish with parsley. it's ready to be packed. Happy Cooking!
