    Sharon123's Note:

    This is a healthy, whole grain, full of high fiber vegetable soup that is so delicious to boot! So pull up a chair and go crazee with me--over the soup of course! Great served with a nice crusty bread and a salad. Can be made in the Crock-Pot.

      This is a really satisfying soup. I made it exactly as posted (except for cutting it in half) and enjoyed the mix of flavors very much. I used a carrot, and loved the bit of color that it added. Thanks for sharing a delicious soup recipe!

      I really enjoyed this hearty soup. I did make a few changes to accomodate what I had on hand. I used 1 onion, chopped for the leek, carrots for parsnips and I didn't have dried porcini mushrooms at all. I prefer barley to lentils so used 1 cup barley and 1/2 cup lentils. The soup smelled wonderful and was ready in about 3 hours. My children didn't love it (they said it was spicy, which I didn't think it was at all) but the hubby and I liked it a lot. I'll make this one again!

      A very easy soup to make. I added a couple of potatoes to make it even heartier. I used a combo of parsnips and carrots and forgot to add the parsley,lime, and Worcestershire sauce. Thanks for the recipe.
