Double Mushroom Barley Soup

Yet another recipe from Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure. This was, of course, delicious. I originally had checked this book out of the library to make sure that I liked it. I have fallen in love with it and gone ahead and bought it. I highly recommend it. The double mushrooms in this soup are buttons and dried shiitake. After we spent entirely too much money on the shiitake mushrooms at the health food store, we just happened to go to an Asian grocery store the next day and found them for MUCH cheaper. Lesson learned. I also found vegan spring roll wrappers there, which I am very excited about, but have yet to use.

Yeah, we have a flyer from Couva Calypso in my store, but I keep forgetting to go. I've heard good things about them, though.

P.S. Where is this fantastic Asian market at?!

It's on Sutherland. If you turn right on Sutherland off of Forest Hill, it is a little ways down on your right (just after the gas station). The other day was my first time there. I was a wimp and didn't want to go to a new place on my own.
