    Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onion and mushrooms in oil, stirring frequently, until tender.

    Stir in tomatoes, barley and thyme; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until barley is tender.

Expert Tips

Regular white mushrooms, cut in half, can be used in place of the portobello mushrooms in this hearty and robust Italian skillet dish. Use regular vegetable or olive oil and half a teaspoon garlic powder in place of the flavored oil.
