This is really quite tasty! I made it in my crockpot; keep in mind that lentils and barley cook rather quickly. I used red lentils, which are very tiny, and they cooked VERY quickly, which made for a nice thick soup (as they dissolved) but if you would like a lentilly textured soup, try the recommended lentils. I doubled the thyme, and sherry, and bay leaf. Used a variety of dried, frozen and fresh mushrooms. The seasonings are what make this so great, so follow along with the recomendations. I also used a veggie bouillion, with a few drops of liquid smoke (use sparingly) to make up for the lack of beef bouillion. Slow cookers beware...this cooks up very fast (although the dried mushrooms take a bit longer), so this would not be a "prep in the a.m., eat in the p.m" kinda dish.
