Ok, I have been making this soup for about two years now. I have made it exactly as written, as well as with a few variations and I like it both ways. Personally, I prefer broth over the water & bullion. I also make it all in one pot by browning the turkey and then adding all the broth and veggies to that pot. A note about barley: if you use quick cooking barley there isn't any problem with the proportions or cooking time, as some have noted. Of course, adjusting a soup to the consistency of your preference by adding more liquid is perfectly reasonable. This soup is in my year round permanent rotation. If I want to make it lighter, I use chicken broth, for a richer soup I use beef broth. I also have been known to add whatever veggies (extra onions or mushrooms for example) that I needed to use up and I have always loved the meal. Even my three kids love this. It is one of the only ways they will eat cabbage. My husband likes to add hot sauce, I like to garnish my bowl with Parmesan, you can do a lot with this. This recipe is a gem!
