    1. 1
      Put dried porcini mushrooms in a bowl and cover with very hot water; soak until they are soft (about 10 minutes), then drain.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large pot; cook onion, celery, garlic, and both mushrooms about 8 minutes, until they are soft.
    3. 3
      Stir in barley and cook one minute.
    4. 4
      Add tomatoes, and stock.
    5. 5
      Bring to boil, then reduce heat and cover.
    6. 6
      Simmer 20 to 30 minutes, until the barley is tender.
    7. 7
      Stir in dill and cayenne pepper; season with salt and black pepper to taste (I find this requires a good deal of salt, but will depend on your stock).

      Simply delcious! I couldn't find porcini mushrooms so used an exotic mix of shitake, porcini, chantrelle, and oyster mushrooms. I also didn't have fresh tomatoes so used home canned ones. No celery, so used some leftover water chestnuts which gave a nice crunch. I will definately make this again, just wonderful. Thank you FlemishMinx!

      This is truly an adult soup. I followed chia's lead and used 1 cup of the mushroom soaking liquid. I did increase the garlic just because I love garlic. Also, instead of the dill, I used fresh basil because that is what I had on hand. Thank you for posting this hearty and warming soup.
