Meatless Mondays: Creamy Mushroom and Grains Soup

by Cassidy Stockton in Featured Articles, Meatless Mondays, Recipes

With the excess of Thanksgiving behind us, a simple and easy meal for Meatless Mondays seems like the perfect thing to end a long post-holiday Monday. I think I’ve shared this recipe before, but I wanted to break it out again because it is so easy and delicious. The oat groats and barley add to the creaminess of the soup, but you could substitute other grains (like brown rice, wild rice, steel cut oats, pearl barley, etc.) if these two are not handy or you want to make a gluten free version. Serve this with a refreshing green salad and crusty whole grain bread for a complete meal that is sure to comfort you after an exhausting day. Save time by soaking the grains overnight or cooking them in the crock pot while you’re at work.
