A twist on mushroom-barley soup, this warming broth, nourished with fresh hens of the woods, royal trumpets, oysters, and chanterelles, counts as a meal. The farro is tender but with a satisfying chew, a handful of dried porcini offers additional depth of flavor, and dill and vinegar give each spoonful a real pop.
There's a reason this rich dish is still a family favorite after all these years: It's just plain delicious. Cooking everything -- even the egg noodles -- in the pressure cooker is a smart update. This recipe comes from our book "One Pot."
When it comes to healing foods, mushrooms receive high marks. Oyster and shiitake may lower cholesterol, stimulate the immune system, and prevent cancer, while cremini offer selenium and a host of B vitamins.
