As it was noted earlier this is a great recipe for a base (I give 4 for the base, because basic instruction is so necessary to go off of for further cooking experiments!) After I sauteed the mushrooms, I added about a 1/4C of red wine and let it reduce, then added the beef broth. I then added some dried parsley and some sprigs of fresh thyme. The thyme really brings it together. I would add more broth in the future (the barley seems to keep on keepin' on soaking up liquid). If you don't like a starchy soup, don't cook the barley in the same pot!
