 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Boiling Water
  • 7/8 oz Dried Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 1 tb Olive Oil
  • 1 c Chopped Onion
  • 1 c Chopped Celery
  • 1 c Chopped Carrots
  • 3/4 c Chopped Fennel Bulb
  • 1/2 c Pearl Barley; Uncooked
  • 1/3 c Quinoa; Uncooked
  • 1/2 c Dried Lentils
  • 4 Sprigs Thyme
  • 3 c Water; Note 1
  • 43 1/2 oz Nonfat Vegetable Broth
  • 2 c Sliced Fresh Mushrooms
  • 3/4 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Pepper


Note 1: Original called for 4 C water ... I wanted a thicker consistency.

Combine 1/2 C boiling water and shiitake mushrooms in a bowl; cover and let
stand 30 min. Drain mushrooms, reserving liquid. Discard mushroom stems;
slice mushroom caps, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over med-high heat until hot. Add
onion and next 8 ingredients; saute 3 min. Add 3 C (4 C) water and
vegetable broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 35 min,
stirring occasionally.

Add shiitake mushrooms, fresh mushrooms, salt, and pepper; cover and simmer
an additional 10 min.

Yield: 8 servings Serving Size 1 1/2 C

This was excellent!! If you reduce the water be sure to keep an eye on it
so that it doesn't cook down too far. Wonderful for a cold evening.
