I made one minor change in that I used a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes rather than fresh. This was extremely thick, had to add an additional two cups of broth and even then it was still very thick but the flavor was good.
I couldn't wait to try some more of her recipes, so I had to make this! I used the red lentils instead of the barley. Nice balanced flavor. Perfect on a soggy, rainy day! Popped the rest into the freezer to save the next time I have a fresh loaf of bread waiting!
