Barley, Shiitake and Spinach Pilaf

4 Servings

In this substantial dish, other mushroom varieties (such as cremini and portobello) can be used instead of the shiitakes if you wish.
  • 1 cup pearled barley
  • 3 cups water or vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbs. canola oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 oz. shiitake mushrooms, sliced (2 ½ cups)
  • 8 oz. white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 cups loosely packed fresh spinach
  • 2 Tbs. tamari
  • 2 tsp. Asian sesame oil
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  1. Add barley and water to medium saucepan. Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until tender, about 1 hour.
  2. In large nonstick saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 7 minutes. (Add sprinkling of water to prevent sticking if necessary.) Add garlic, shiitake and white mushrooms and cook, stirring often, 3 minutes. Add spinach and barley and cook, stirring often, until barley is heated through and spinach is wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with tamari, sesame oil and cayenne pepper.
