  •  I want the tortilla casserole! Now! (12+ / 0-)


    Last night I made an awesome Barley Mushroom Garlic Onion casserole topped with shredded Swiss cheese. It was awesome-- tasted almost like a non-soupy French Onion soup. Very filling, very good for cold weather

        Serves 8.

        Note: The flavors are reminiscent of French onion soup with mushrooms. Use any available mushroom. From "Betty Crocker Vegetarian Cooking."

        • 3 tbsp. butter
        • 3 medium onions, thinly sliced
        • 1 tsp. sugar
        • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
        • 6 c. sliced baby portabella mushrooms (three 8-oz. pkg.) (see Note)
        • 11/2 c. uncooked pearl barley
        • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (1 c.)
        • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
        • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
        • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
        • 1/2 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
        • 1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
        • 4 c. vegetable broth
        • 3/4 c. shredded Swiss cheese (3 oz.)


        Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

        In 5-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over low heat. Add onions and sugar; cook about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown. Add garlic and mushrooms; cook 5 to 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Add barley; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in bell pepper, parsley, soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper and thyme. Pour in baking dish.

        In microwavable bowl, microwave broth uncovered on high 4 minutes. Pour broth over onion-mushroom mixture. Cover with foil.

        Bake 1 hour. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with cheese.

    •  I second that request. (1+ / 0-)

      I'm seeking to organize DKos members in SE Michigan--roughly, from the Ohio line at Lake Erie NE to Port Huron, W to Flint and back S from there. If you'd like to join our new group, Motor City Kossacks (working title), please Kosmail me.
