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.
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.
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.
I loved this soup. Added a few beef marrow bones and some fresh rosemary. Used sliced baby bella and shiitake mushrooms.
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.
Great recipe! Substitute canned tomatoes for the tomato paste if you want. Very filling. Serve as the main course on a cold winter night!
