    Sharon123's Note:

    Nutty tasting barley and sweet celery root turn this soup into comfort food! To speed up cooking time, replace the pearl barley with quick-cooking barley, add it with the carrots and celery root and simmer the soup for about 20 minutes total. Adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine(2006).

      Lovely vegetarian soup! It brought back memories of my Moms barley soup that she made with leeks. I did find that I missed the heartiness of the meat and OR mushrooms. The dill and lemon made this more of a summer soup making it nice and light. So I wil try it in warmer weather. For barley is one of my favorite grains. Thanks

      Since both DH and I think Barley is underrated, I made this soup today. It is so good, so filling, and makes your house smell really good, too! Honestly, the leeks were just wonderful cooked this way, and all the flavors blended perfectly. The dill was a nice litte touch! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, Sharon123! We loved it!

      Great tasty and healthy soup! I used packaged vegetable stock instead of the bouillon cubes, about 3 cups stock and 4 cups water which seemed to be about the right proportion; because of this I had to add some salt as well. My first time using celery root and I liked both the flavor and the texture. The addition of the dill was a surprise to me but it was really good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
