Mushroom Barley Soup

Submitted by: TESSFROMWA

Introduction

Use a variety of mushrooms, such as shiitakes and baby portabellos, for added flavor and textures. Quick-cooking barley speeds things up. If using pearl barley, allow about 20 minutes additional cooking time. Use a variety of mushrooms, such as shiitakes and baby portabellos, for added flavor and textures.

Directions

Chop the onions, carrots, celery and bell pepper.

In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, add oil. Sauté the carrots, garlic, celery, onion, and bell pepper for 8 to 10 minutes, or until softened. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5 to 8 minutes, or until they give off most of their liquid.

Add broth and bring to a boil, stirring to combine.

Add barley and stir to combine. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the barley is tender and the soup thickens, stirring occasionally.

Stir in the soy sauce.
