Very good! Multiple flavors that make it very interesting. I had portabello mushrooms so I cut them up and used them instead, very "meaty" tasting without the meat!
Awesome soup. Very flavorful and nutritious. I added a couple of bay leaves for the 1 hour simmer. Next time I make this I will add a tablespoon or two of flour before I add the broth just to see how that turns out. nice recipe, thanks for sharing.
Saw this featured on the allrecipes homepage and made it... it was a tasty basic winter soup. I used white mushrooms and portobellos.
We loved this. I had to add chicken because my family doesn't think it's a meal w/o meat & I happened to have some cooked chicken. I also couldn't find my barley so I made some Japanese Black Rice in the oven and added it toward the end of the soup time. Turned out fantastic, flavorful and filling! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Very good. I used a small can of diced tomatoes and 1 quart of beef broth for the liquid. Doubled the amount of garlic and added hot pepper flakes. I will make this again and again.
We all loved this, the only changes that I made were using 14 Oz. Of crushed tomatoes instead of tomatoes paste, beef Better than Broth bullion instead of canned and doubled the barley. Delicious, hearty and easy!
This is a solid recipe, but it could use a little improvement. Most notably, you would think that this would be a pretty hearty soup...but there's a really high broth-to-other-stuff ratio. I doubled the barley, and I'm definitely sure I could've quadrupled it with the amount of broth I had in there.
Alternately, since the recipe called for beef broth (and it isn't necessarily a vegetarian dish), I'm guessing I could've thrown maybe 1 to 1.5 pounds of stew meat in there to give it more body. Then again, I guess it'd be more of a "stew" then.
Regardless, the taste is there, and it definitely did the trick on a cold Fall day. I'd definitely recommend this recipe as something that is good, different, and relatively easy to concoct.
I loved this soup. Added a few beef marrow bones and some fresh rosemary. Used sliced baby bella and shiitake mushrooms.
