Wild rice and barley pilaf


1 sm onion; minced
1 garlic clove; minced
3 1/2 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper
1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
1 cup wild rice
1/2 cup pearl barley

How to prepare

In a 12″ frying pan or 2- to 3-quart pan, combine onion, mushrooms, garlic, and 1/2 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 tbsp 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.
