I quadrupled the recipe. My supermarket had mushrooms on sale...so I took advantage of the bargain. Being Ukrainian, I was raised on anything mushrooms. I gave some to my brother, whose wife only makes soup out of a can, he raved about it!!!
I too, tweaked the recipe. I added seasoned salt, garlic powder and used butter. A keeper! Thanx KZB

Delicious soup. Incredibly easy recipe for such good results. I did add at least an extra cup of broth. I will be making this many more times. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

This was a tasty easy recipe to prepare for lunch. I think I prefer beef stock instead of chicken, but it was still good as is, Thanks!

Awesome soup! So easy and delicious! Just added 1 tsp. garlic powder and a cup of chopped celery. I let is simmer on low for 2 hrs and it thickened up nicely.
Thanks for posting a great mushroom soup!

I love barley and mushrooms. This soup was simple to prepare, tasty, and sustaining. Just what I needed on a blah day. Thanks.

This recipe is awesome! I am a vegetarian and I used vegan chicken broth in place of chicken broth, added a clove of garlic and some poultry seasoning. So delicious, cheap and filling. I will be making this again and again, thanks for sharing :)

I love barley and mushrooms and I thought it was perfect as is! It is light enough that the mushroom flavor really stands out. For those who want more pronounced flavors try using baby bella mushrooms and beef broth instead of chicken broth.

This was very good but subtly seasoned. I added some milk and poultry seasoning as well as an additional chicken bouillion cube. I like the idea of sauteing the onion and mushrooms in butter as I think that would add more flavor too.
