Raelene's Creamy Mushroom Barley

I created this one evening when I was trying to create a dish made with barley that would appeal to everyone in the family. It is very simple and really does taste great. Barley is low on the glycemic index so it's a great dish for someone who is heath conscious. If you enjoy garlic flavour add a clove or two while the mushrooms saute, also red or green diced peppers would probably taste quite nice as well. If you are on a low fat diet you may replace the butter with olive oil and replace the cream with low fat milk or a creamy soy milk.
