A wonderful soup that reminds me of one my Nana used to cook for me as a kid. I doubled the recipe, and added 8 cloves minced garlic, a 2 inch piece of minced ginger, 3 finely chopped jalapenos, a bunch of cilantro stalks minced, 1 cup of barley, 4 bay leaves, and a few extra herbs. Also I used beef broth instead of water and fried the onion, garlic, celery, cilantro stalks, and jalapeno first. Then I used the slow cooker, on high until it boiled, then turned to low. Near the end I thought it looked watery so I thickened it with cornstarch and some of the liquid from the soup. Rave reviews from everyone that came to feast! Will make this again and again. Also, it was really inexpensive for the result!
