 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Uncooked barley
    6 1/2   c            Water
    1       T            Margarine
    1                    Medium onion, chopped
    2                    Garlic cloves, mince
    1       lb           Mushrooms, sliced
      1/2   t            Salt
    3       T            Soy sauce
    3       T            Dry sherry
                         Black pepper to taste
 
   1) Place the barley and 1 1/2 cups of the water in a large saucepan or a
   Dutch oven.  Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer until the barley is tender
   (20 to 30 minutes).
   2) Meanwhile, melt the margarine in a skillet.  Add the onions and saute'
   for about 5 minutes over medium heat.  Add garlic, mushrooms, and salt.
   Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until everything is very tender -
   about 10 to 12 minutes.  Stir in soy sauce and sherry.
   3) Add the saute' with all its liquid to the cooked barley, along with the
   remaining 5 cups of water.  Grind in a generous amount of black pepper,
   and simmer, partially covered, another 20 minutes over very low heat.
   Taste to correct seasonings, and serve.
