A Revised Rendition of the Savory Pie Everyone Loves
These potpies, made with a hearty mix of mushrooms, barley and white beans, are just as delicious as the traditional chicken version—but won't leave guests in a food coma.

And while most mushrooms are available year-round, many are at their peak in fall and winter.
