i used chicken stock instead of veggie, didn't have zucchini so substituted more celery in place, doubled the tinned tomatoes, used barlotti beans instead of chickpeas, added fresh garlic instead of powdered, didn't need any extra salt (the stock was salty enough), and i doubled the worcestershire sauce. i also sauted the veggies first to bring out their sweetness a bit, then simmered the lot for an hour, adding instant barley for the last 15 mins. served with baguette & herb butter, and sprinkled with parmesan. tasty soup, but i think i'll up the spices a bit more next time to suit my taste.
