Curried Vegetables and Barley

A hearty vegetarian meal to tempt the most serious steak lover. It freezes and reheats beautifully. Add cubes of chicken or shrimp, if you like. Serves 6 to 8 (as a side dish) and 4 to 6 (as a main dish).

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 3/4 pound carrots, peeled
  • 2 each medium zucchini and yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into small florets
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup Stonewall Kitchen Roasted Garlic Mustard
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons Stonewall Kitchen Old Farmhouse Chutney
  • 2-3 Tablespoons curry paste
  • 2 cups cooked barley (about 2/3 cup raw, cooked according to package instructions)
  • 3/4 pounds crimini or white mushrooms, wiped clean, trimmed and quartered
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Chopped toasted pecans for garnish

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat. When hot, stir in onions and sauté until brown about 3 minutes. Add carrots, zucchini, squash and cauliflower. Partially cover pot, adjust heat to medium and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour in white wine, bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Add stock, half-and-half, mustard, chutney and curry paste. Stir in barley and mushrooms. Cover and simmer until vegetables are just tender, about 8 minutes.
  3. Remove about 1/2 cup of the liquid. Stir cornstarch into the liquid and return liquid to pot and blend well. Stir in dill and continue cooking gently for a few minutes until sauce has thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with pecans.
