Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    6 cups low sodium vegetable broth
    2 cups water
    2 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
    2 Tbsp asian chile paste
    2 Tbsp canola or other cooking oil
    2 shallots, minced (one small onion is fine)
    4 cloves garlic (more or less to taste)
    1 large carrot diced
    4 ribs celery, diced
    8 oz mushrooms, sliced
    1 cup quick cooking pearl barley
    4-6 leaves kale, coarsely chopped

Tips

The chili paste adds a nice heat and flavor, but isn't necessary. If you don't have it you could probably just add red pepper flakes. You could also leave it out entirely if you don't like it spicy.


Directions

In a stock pot pour canola oil and heat for a minute on medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Reduce to medium heat and add garlic. Cook for one more minute stirring frequently. Add celery, carrots and mushrooms. Cook for another 4-5 minutes, continuing to stir, until mushrooms start to soften. Add water, broth, chili paste, soy sauce and barley. Cook covered for 15-20 minutes until barley is tender. Add Kale just before serving.
