Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I agree with several of the other posters that the taste was a bit bland. It could have benefitted from a richer liquid, like vegetable or beef stock, and I would have doubled or maybe even tripled the amount of barley. But you sure can't beat the low calorie count. Submitted by:

Sounds tasty. I'd add carrot, maybe leek and potato. Kale would be lovely.
If using soy sauce, leave out the salt (unless adding loads extra greens).
Maybe swap dry sherry for some balsamic vinegar, just for a change.
If you like it thicker, add some orange lentils - they boil down really quickly

Very good. I skipped the soy sauce, worcertshire and salt and added a couple tablespoons of dried basil. My family loved it and it will be something I make often. Submitted by:

I love it. I used beef broth to substitute for the sherry and used Mrs. Dash seasoning instead of salt. I love it because you can add anything to it. I added some carrots and peas. Yummy!!! Submitted by:

Excellent soup! I added 4 c beef broth and used as first course. Omitted sherry & salt. Used 1/2 tsp black pepper. Gave a strong pepper flavor. Try a little balsamic vinegar. Enhances flavor. DH disagrees, but recommends more barley. Replace some water w/ nf evaporated milk to make it creamy. Submitted by:

This is delicious. I added additional barley and mushrooms. For flavor I added a little beef broth and Crazy Jane's mixed up salt. Very filling yet low in calories! Submitted by:

I needed to double both the soy sauce (I used the lighter sodium kind) and the worteshire sauce because the soup was pretty bland at first. I don't like green bell peppers so I added celery and carrots. Will definitely make this soup over and over again Submitted by:

I made this last night. It was good, but a little bland. I needed to add more salt and definitely pepper. I also thought that more barley would enhance the soup. Thanks for the recipe! Submitted by:

Tried this one today and love it! I added dry, non-fat milk and cornstarch to make it a creamy mushroom soup as well. My husband says this is one to keep and make again. Thanks much. Submitted by:
