  1. In saucepan, bring water and barley to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer, uncovered, until almost tender, 10-15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, soak porcini mushrooms in boiling water until softened, about 30 minutes. Chop and set aside, reserving mushroom liquid.
  3. In large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add celery, carrots and onion; sauté until golden.
  4. Add mushrooms and sauté until mushrooms have released their liquids and are browned.
  5. Add thyme, stock, mushroom liquid, sherry, barley, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until vegetables and barley are just barely tender.
