MISE EN PLACE • Peel sweet potato; cut into 1/2-inch dice. • Discard mushroom stems; thinly slice caps. • Peel and chop garlic. • Finely chop green onion, keeping white and green parts separate. • Pick and finely chop parsley.
2
• Place a saucepan over medium heat. Add barley, sweet potato, bouillon cube and 3 cups water. • When water boils, reduce heat to medium-high. Cook at an active boil until most of the water has been absorbed and barley and sweet potato are tender, about 20 minutes. • Remove from heat. Keep warm until ready to serve.

Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. • Add mushrooms in a single layer. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes. • Cook, tossing often, until tender and shiny, 1 minute.
4
• Stir in 2 tablespoons water, smoked paprika and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. • Cook, stirring, until mushrooms are coated in seasoning, about 1 minute. • Sprinkle with benne seeds. Remove from heat.
5
• Uncover barley. Stir in 1 teaspoon cooking oil. • Mix in onion greens and parsley. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
6
• Divide barley between 2 bowls. • Top with mushrooms and microgreens, and enjoy!
