    2       tb           Soy margarine
      2/3   c            Barley, uncooked (4.5 oz)
    1       c            Chopped onions
    1       c            Chopped cauliflower (1/4")
    1       c            Chopped mushrooms
    1       c            Finely shredded carrots
    2 1/2   c            Water
    2       ts           Instant vegetable broth mix
      1/4   ts           Garlic powder
      1/8   ts           Pepper
 
   Preheat oven to 350'F.
   
   Lightly oil a 1 3/4-quart casserole or spray with
   nonstick cooking spray.
   
   Melt 1 tablespoon of the margarine in a large nonstick
   skillet over medium heat. Add barley and cook 2-3
   minutes, stirring frequently until lightly browned.
   Place in prepared casserole.
   
   Melt remaining margarine in skillet. Add onions and
   cauliflower. Cook, stirring frequently, 5 minutes. Add
   mushrooms and carrots. Cook 5 more minutes, stirring
   frequently. Add vegetables to casserole.
   
   In a small bowl, combine water, broth mix, garlic
   powder and pepper. Mix well and add to casserole.
   
   mix well, cover and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes, until
   barley is tender and most of the liquid has been
   absorbed. Stir several times while baking.
   
   Let stand 5 minutes, then mix and serve.
