This time I was curious about pearl barley, so that had to be the base. The result turned out quite fine. So here’s what I came up with. **Ingredients** * 1/2 cup of pearl barley * 1 cup of water * 1/2 cup diced mushrooms * 2 branches of thyme * 1/4th of a medium sized onion * 1 garlic clove * 4 table spoons of olive oil * a little salt **Directions** 1. Wash the pearl barley, let the wet barley rest of a bit while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. 2. Dice the carrot, dice the mushrooms 3. Heat the water, add a little bit of salt. Once the water boils, add the barley and the diced carrot. Let it boil on low heat for about 45 minutes. If the barley should soak up all water, add a little more each time. 4. Dice the onion finely, also the garlic. 5. Heat the oil in a small pot. Add the diced mushrooms, onion and garlic. 6. Fry the mushrooms till they get some tan. Then add the thyme branches and put a lid on the pot. Fry for 5 to 10 minutes more. Don’t burn the mushrooms but fry them well, this will develop flavor. Keep the heat low all the time. Once done, place the barley and carrot bedding on the plate, add the fried mushrooms on top. Voila! The salad shown is a mixed salad with yogurt dressing, the desert is a simple pear compote.
