Barley Mushroom Stew : Pressure Cooker

Barley Mushroom Stew : Pressure CookerFor greatest nutrition, buy whole barley rather than the pearled variety. That way the vitamin-rich hull of the grain is intact. This hearty stew is quick and easy to make in the pressure cooker.

Serves 6.

  • 1/2 c onion, chopped
  • 1 carrot, peeled and chopped
