A Soup to Warm You

Seeing as how most of the country is experiencing a winter-chill today, I thought I’d share this recipe for Creamy Mushroom and Grains Soup. It’s delightfully easy and wonderfully soothing on a cold day. Not to mention the amazing nutrition from whole grain barley and oat groats. Both wonderful sources of dietary fiber, these two grains are definitely a heart-healthy team! We have many more heart-friendly soup and stew recipes on our website. Enjoy!
