The original recipe called for groats. Groats?! What are those? They sound totally groat. I wasn’t sure what they were and my local grocery store didn’t have any. Since the original recipe described them as a barley texture, I substituted barley for groats. Not sure what groats taste like, but this tasted great with the barely. We certainly love our mushrooms!
This was nice and hearty for a vegetarian stew. We all loved it. Ellie only ate just the mushrooms though. I served this with a salad and pear and cheddar grilled cheese sandwiches. Good eatin’!
