We thought this soup was ok, but not good enough to make it again. Just not enough flavor.
This was really satisfying. I used 3 quarts water and half beef/chicken base. I added pinch of red pepper flakes, basil, and a half pinch of some blackened seasoning I had lying around. I cooked in my pressure cooker. I liked that it wasn't overly thick. Roxygirl in Colo.
This is truly a great mushroom barley soup. I followed the recipe exactly using 3 quarts of my own chicken stock. The soup was very flavorful and the texture was perfect, not overly thick. Thank you Desouter for this recipe. It is one which I will be making again.
It is threatening snow and this soup was just right to make us feel cosy. Followed the recipe exactly except I cut the barley back to 3/4 cup. I was going to freeze some but we liked it so much we are going to have it again in two days. Thanks Desouter for a great cold weather soup (or for any other time too!
