Lentil Mushroom Barley Mash

Hearty Lentil, Mushroom & Barley Mash [v.]

Still thawing over here in New England. This mash did the trick – comfort food at it’s tastiest, folks. I can’t begin to tell you how incredibly delicious and hearty this quick dish is. If you are a mushroom fan, this recipe is dedicated to you, baby.

There are a few parts to this recipe, but trust me – it takes under a half hour!



You will need:

  • 2 cups lentils, prepared according to package
  • 1/2 cup barley, prepared according to package
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 vidalia onion, sliced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp celery salt
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup water

To make:

  • Cook lentils and barley in separate pots, according to package instructions.
  • While lentils and barley are cooking, prep all veggies. Sauté in olive oil over medium heat. Cook until tender.
  • Once lentils are done, take 1/2 cup out and put in a blender. Add 1/3 cup water and blend until smooth. Creamy dreamy, right? Set aside.
  • Add cooked veggies to pot of cooked lentils and mix well. Season with garlic salt, onion powder, celery salt, salt, and pepper.
  • Last but not least, stir in the lentil mash. Done!

This dish is a dream come true… basically all you need to know. Now go make it! xx bianca

  2. One question on this recipe – is it 2 cups lentils and 1/2 cup barley after cooking, or before? Your recipe includes a cooking step for them, but the ingredient list says already prepared, so I’m not sure what measurement you meant.
