Hearty shiitake mushrooms combine with rich and colorful carrot juice, instant barley (a good-for-you grain) and fresh kale to create a satisfying, veggie-packed bowl that is perfect for these chilly autumn nights. Best of all, this stew doesn’t need to stew on the stove all day; it is ready in just 40 minutes, making it a go-to weeknight pick.

End the meal on a sweet note by serving The Neelys’ quick and easy Apple Crisp, featuring a crumbly brown sugar-cinnamon topping and a warm filling of crunchy pecans and in-season Granny Smith apples.
