Mushroom Lentil Barley Soup

Miso just gives everything a wonderful flavor. I made this up one day when I was craving mushroom barley soup, but wanted something more substantial.

Serves 6

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large red onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp miso paste
1 tsp thyme
2/3 cup lentils, rinsed
2/3 cup pearl barley
2 cups sliced crimini mushrooms (or whatever mushroom you prefer)
6 cups water
½ tbsp chicken bouillon
¼ cup cooking wine (optional)

Sauté onion in oil over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add chopped garlic and stir for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add miso paste and stir until well-blended. Add lentils, barley, chopped mushrooms, thyme and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer about 1 hr.
