Directions

  1. Rinse mushrooms and place in a bowl with enough cold water to cover; soak until mushrooms are re-hydrated, about 15 minutes. Drain and slice mushrooms.
  2. Combine 4 cups chicken broth, water, potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, barley, and black pepper in a pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer until barley is cooked, about 1 hour.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; saute onion and garlic in hot oil until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion and garlic to barley mixture, bring soup again to a simmer, cover the pot, and cook until flavors blend, about 30 minutes.
  4. Whisk remaining chicken broth and flour together in a bowl until smooth; stir into soup, bring to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soup thickens, about 15 minutes.

Finally getting around to reviewing this recipe. It's delicious! I haven't cooked with barley in ages and was looking for a new recipe to use it. I made the recipe exactly as written. I used dried oyster mushrooms and loved the flavor! I almost used fresh mushroom since they're cheaper than dried, but do not, I repeat, DO NOT skimp out on this! The dried mushrooms add such a lovely flavor that is more concentrated than fresh, and a nice texture. It was almost a pity tossing out the soaking liquid from the mushrooms. I'm thinking I may use that liquid as part of the water requirements next time. The only thing I might suggest is adding the potatoes halfway through cooking. I found they were falling apart by the time the soup was done. Thank you Kathie for sharing your dad's soup!
