This is the story of a barley who wanted to be a soup. If fact, it wanted to be the Mushroom-Barley Soup from @cyberpenguin. As much as I’m excited to find a fellow cooking flightless bird, I messed it all up. So the water ended up evaporating. No soup, just boiled barley with veggies.
Tasted great though. I guess that’s the beauty of cooking, mistakes become discoveries, and I’ve discovered a different dish to enjoy.
Barley with mushrooms, carrots, courgette, split peas and chickpeas
– A teaspoon of olive oil
– Mushrooms (don’t need to be organic)
– Organic wholemeal barley
– Dried split peas
– Chickpeas (I boil them in bulk then freeze them. So they are ready when I need some)
Cut, sauté and boil. As always I’m a mess with proportions.
