"Great fall soup that really is the consistency of a stew. Substitute vegetables based on availability. Add chicken, pork, or stew meat if desired. Can substitute another grain for barley."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

green bell pepper, chopped
Thick, rich and hearty stew! I put spinach instead of the arugula, and omitted the salt. Great taste! Makes great leftovers!
It was good but needed more flavour. I added some italian seasonning. This is an healthy meal with lots of vegetables so I will probably do it again with more spices and broth instead of water.
Very filling and flaverful.
I made this last minute and the store did not have rutabaga, so I added more potatoes. Also used spinach for same reason. I used stock not water to add some flavor, but needed to add more liquid than called for. Vegetables got a bit too soft for my taste so next time I will add them with lentils not barley. Definately a winner in my book.
My husband and I love lentils and we've been trying to eat an over-abundance of arugula from our garden. This was the perfect combination. I didn't have barley so I used short grain brown rice, substituted chicken broth, left out the salt, and as another reviewer suggested, added 3 bay leaves, some basil and marjoram. Next time I'll add more arugula and black pepper. We loved the stew consistency. Served it with a dollop of sour cream.
Pretty bland, it was hearty and filling, but just didn't have anything special to it.
Very delicious! I changed a couple of things. First, I added bacon with the onion. I added 2 more cups of water and 2 large chicken boullion cubes. I omitted the barley and the rutabaga and added a ham bone. I also added 3 bay leaves, a tablespoon of basil. and lemon juice from a half of a lemon. No need for salt. This version is less thick. Thank you for the recipe. FANTASTIC
