Top Review by Vino Girl

I was so happy to find a meatless barley soup recipe, and this is a good one. I stuck pretty close to the recipe - I did use quite a bit more garlic, pepper and herbs than called for, and instead of the canned red beans I used a cup each of Great Northern and pinto beans (I cook large batches of dry beans and freeze them for later). When the soup was done, I felt it needed a little something so I put in a bit of basalmic vinegar. This soup reminds me a lot of minestrone. It has a wonderful Italian tomato and herb aroma, it's colorful, and has a nice blend of flavors and textures. I actually left mine on LOW for over 12 hours, and that was fine. I had some of the leftovers for lunch and it reheated perfectly. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe.
