Made it last Thanksgiving, and plan to do so again this Thanksgiving. Used sliced white mushrooms, but more than called for (1/2 lb. instead of i C.) Also used about 1Tbsp. of chopped fresh dill. Guests loved it. Barley and wild rice an interesting combo. Just "feels" healthier and less caloric than other starches.
