Sausage Barley Soup

Sausage Barley Soup

MRSARAB

"This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn't seem to be a lot of variety... and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better."

Delicious! I used hot Italian sausage, cut into chunks, and it gave the soup such a kick. I used two carrots and a little more barley (1/3 cup) as suggested, tossed in some dried basil/oregano/g...

An excellent soup for a cold day! I added shredded carrot (I don't care for sliced carrots), a can of diced tomatoes, a can of sliced mushrooms, and used hot sausage. I don't understand commen...

Overall it was good. I ate more than my husband did, and after a few days the dog got the leftovers. It wasn't quite the right flavor combos. It was missing something. It also was a bit oily for...
