A good basic chicken veg barley soup, but I did it a little different - I added shredded cabbage cuz I love cabbage, and a tin of tomatoes. I did not use butter, but added some coffee cream instead (10%) which made it into a "cream of..." soup. Instead of adding barley, you could add quinoa and instead of adding any grain, you could use a hand wand-type blender to puree 1/3 of the soup to thicken it up. I used home made chicken stock to which I added a whole red chilli during the stock making process so my soup had a little more oomph. My spice choices were fresh rosemary, parsley, basil, sage, bay leaf, garlic. Avoided the almonds as they add calories and would get soft in a liquid based dish (i thought). Ate with crusty bagette and some real buddah (my vice). Also added spinach and left over home made french fries chopped up (cooked in the chicken fat off the soup stock - nothing gets wasted in my house). Ok no more brackets and thanks for sharing the recipe LEENEMS! PS: it gets better the next day
