Barley with Mushrooms and Onions

Barley, in a way, is the often overlooked grain. With a satisfying chewiness and a neutral flavor, this is a grain that will take on the flavor of neighboring ingredients just as well as rice. Here, mushrooms and onions lend a savory element to this easy-to-make side dish.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2/3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped Spanish onion
  • 1/2 pound cremini mushrooms, shredded
  • 3 cups vegetable or mushroom broth
  • 1 cup barley
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Directions

Coat a heavy saucepan with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pan. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms release their moisture, stirring a few times, about 5 minutes.

Add the broth, barley, and salt and bring to a boil. Partially cover the pan and reduce heat to low. Simmer until the barley is tender, stirring occasionally, about 60-75 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
