Don't let the short list of ingredients fool you: this soup is so satisfyingly delicious! I used fresh tomatoes and roasting those veggies prior to adding to the soup adds a whole other dimension of flavor. I used organic veggie broth rather than chicken. A change to the recipe indications: I did not add the roasted veggies until right before serving, as I didn't want them to lose that baked flavor & texture while sitting in the soup. Also, if you use quick barley, this soup only needs to simmer for 10 minutes before it's ready.
This soup is intensely flavorful. I used real tomatoes instead of canned and less onion than called for. It would make for a nice appetizer or side dip, not so great as a soup.
This was one of the best soups we've had recently. Proof that sometimes the simplest of ingredients are all that's needed for a great tasting recipe. I followed just as written, although I deglazed the roasting pan first with some of the broth before adding all to the pot.
Made this for lunch today. I used 1 14oz can "no salt" diced tomatoes and 1 can RoTel tomatoes with green chilies. Made the "homemade chicken broth" from this site. This is very healthy and very tasty. I can't wait to take in my lunch.
This was a hearty, healthy, easy to make soup. I added more garlic and 2 carrots diced small. I would also recommend drainind the tomatoes as well as you can before roasting. The less liquid, the better the "roasted" taste. I will make this again.
Good for a quick, easy and inexpensive meal.
Such a simple and tasty soup! I added a can of mild Rotel because we like a hint of spice. Hubby LOVED it and wants it again!!
This soup is fantastic!!! Just make sure to not over due the barley. I have zero broth because I dumped to much in! Reguardless it is amazing! I added green peppers and Italian seasoning for personal taste.
