1 onion, finely chopped

¼ - ½ pound mushrooms, sliced [more mushrooms are good too]
2 c [non-fat] chicken broth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Cook onion in butter until wilted. Add barley, Cook while stirring until it turns golden. Add mushrooms and cook until they wilt. Spoon mix into buttered [or oiled] 1 quart casserole. Pour 1 c broth over the top, cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and add remaining broth. Cook 30 minutes longer or until barley is done, adding more broth if necessary.
