      The family really loved this soup; even both kids had seconds. A tasty comfort food! I would especially recommend it if you want your family to eat some different vegtables than the usual, or if you really like root veggies, as they definitely give the soup a different flavor. I followed the recipe pretty closely, using sirloin tips. Since the recipe didn't say, I added them with the barley. They turned out very tender. For the veggies, I mostly "pulsed" in my food processor, so they were pretty small, and that worked well - easy plus made a great texture. Lots of flavor, but wasn't like biting into pieces of vegtables. I did need to simmer the soup closer to 50 minutes. I made the soup in the afternoon, and we ate it for dinner, but in my haste to eat it, I forgot to add the spinach. We'll do that with the leftovers. Anyway, the soup got better as it sat.
