My husband and I really liked this soup. However, I used two large cans of diced tomatoes, and instead of fresh tomatoes, I used two cans of stewed tomatoes one of which was Italian flavored, a pinch of red pepper flakes and 1 Tbsp chicken boullion instead of broth. I didn't add extra water as I didn't cook the barley in the soup. In fact I put some of soup in a blender to thicken and I got the consistancy I wanted. I then divided the amount to be used as two seperate dishes. One I added boiled potatoes to since I didn't have any rice or barley on hand, and the second I actually added the barley to on another day. Great low cal soup, and it was easy to make!
