Recipe Ingredients for Mushroom-Barley Soup

1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 pound shiitake or button mushrooms, stemmed and roughly chopped
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup pearl barley
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Recipe Directions for Mushroom-Barley Soup

  1. Soak porcini in 3 cups very hot water. Put olive oil in a medium saucepan and turn heat to high. Add shiitakes and onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until they begin to brown. Add barley, and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until it begins to brown; sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Remove the porcini from their soaking liquid, and reserve liquid. Sort through porcini and discard any hard bits.

  2. Add porcini to pot and cook, stirring, for about a minute. Add mushroom soaking water and 1 cup additional water and stock. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer; cook until barley is very tender, 20 to 30 minutes. Add soy sauce, and taste. Add salt if necessary and plenty of pepper. Serve hot.
