The ultimate winter comfort food.


8 cups water
1 cup ground beans
8 oz. mushrooms
1 large onion
1/4 cup barley
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Sauté onion and mushrooms in water or oil; use more or less according to your taste. Add water and barley. Cook about half an hour, add remaining ingredients and cook an additional half hour. Alternatively, you can cook everything at once for an hour. It’s simpler and there’s no great loss in overlooking the beans.
