First of all, I like that this recipe made a point of calling for celery greens. I think they are underused and I usually put them into any soup I make that uses celery. We are big fans of barley soups and this was a nice basic recipe that could easily be adapted to use whatever veggies you had around. I stuck pretty much to the recipe other than throwing in some carrots I had to use up, using dry dill (because it is all I had) and because I didn't have the seasoning mix I used some veggie stock powder granules. We enjoyed this as our main meal tonight with some crusty bread on the side. Made for Bargain Basement tag.
