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.
