"You can cook up a chicken or turkey carcass, or add stock and leftover turkey. Great way to end the Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. I lost this recipe and spent two months searching for it. When it fell out of an unexpected book, I was thrilled and made the soup right away. If you like barley and mushrooms, you will love this soup."

  1. Bring the barley and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the barley is tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, salt, and bay leaves. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the carrot and celery; cook for 5 more minutes. Pour in the wine and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the mushrooms, dill, soy sauce, turkey broth, and cooked barley; season to taste with pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer 1 1/2 hours.

This soup was okay, much better the next day. It was a little bland for our taste. The soy sauce was lost in the soup. If I make this again, I'll add at least a tablespoon of soy sauce and will ...

Excellent basic barley soup recipe. The (small) changes I made were to add some squash, no turkey, and red wine instead of wine. Seems to be a very forgiving recipe.

I made this and added some chicken and it is great very tasty.

Have made this soup twice now, and both times have gotten rave reviews. The only change I made the second time around was to add more carrots and celery.

Great soup! Wonderfull taste, great texture my whole family loved it! Thank you soooo much! A great use of barley!

Excellent soup!
