Hungarian Mushroom Barley Soup

Barley is a tasty and healthy grain. You can find it in the grains section of any grocery store.
1 tablespoon (15 ml) butter
½ large yellow onion, finely chopped
1 small carrot, finely chopped
1 small celery stalk, finely chopped
15 medium white mushrooms, chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
1 cup (250 ml) barley (rinsed)
Salt and pepper to taste

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, carrot, and celery and sauté until the onion becomes translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to soften. Add the broth and barley to the sautéed vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the barley is fully hydrated. Season the dish with salt and pepper.
