Presoaked beans to reduce cooking time, sauted carrots, celery and onion with oil before added other ingredients. Also added barley (2 c.). Since we had precooked beans, the amount of water called for still worked well (maybe could have used more). The barley cooks during the last 20-30 minutes or so. My husband said there were too many beans (I think we could have used some more liquids, but since I didn't have a can of tomatoes, that played into it some, too.) We are freezing the second half. Lastly, we made it vegetarian and had some ham on the side for meat eaters to stir in. I will make it again.
