Mushroom Barley Garlic Soup

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Retro Kali

I got this out of Parade magazine ten years ago( '99). It is very garlicky, with an earthy flavor. Easy to make, too. I usually add seasoning as I go along. Thyme, Oregano, and even Rosemary is good in this. I have included the minimal spices. Add what you like!
