Wild rice & barley pilaf

Yield: 5 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 small Onion; minced
½ pounds Mushrooms, sliced
1 Garlic clove; minced
1 cup Wild rice
3½ cup Chicken broth
½ cup Pearl barley
Salt and pepper

In a 12-inch frying pan or 2- to 3-quart pan, combine onion, mushrooms, garlic, and ½ cup water. Cook, uncovered, on high heat until liquid evaporates and a brown film forms in pan, about 15 minutes; stir often. Add 2 or 3 tablespoons water and stir to free the brown film; cook until the film forms again. Repeat this step 4 or 5 times until onions are richly browned, about 15 minutes. Rinse and drain rice. Mix with broth in pan. Bring to a boil on high heat; cover, and simmer 30 minutes. Rinse and drain barley. Add to rice; simmer until grains are tender to bite but just slightly chewy, about 20 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Makes 5 or 6 servings. Per serving: 184 cal.
