Ingredients
  • 2 cups carrot juice
  • 10 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and reserved, caps sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup instant barley
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery with leaves, finely diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cups kale or mustard greens, stems removed and leaves torn
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger
Directions

Bring the carrot juice, 3 cups water and the mushroom stems to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil and 2 tablespoons butter in a pot over medium-high heat. Add the mushroom caps and barley and cook until the barley is toasted, about 5 minutes.

Add the onion, celery and rosemary to the pot and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 2 minutes. Add the carrots and cook 2 more minutes.

Increase the heat to high and add half of the carrot juice mixture, leaving the mushroom stems in the pan. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is almost absorbed, about 6 minutes.

Add the remaining carrot juice mixture, the kale and ginger and cook, stirring, until the barley and vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, then ladle the stew into bowls.
