DIRECTIONS

  • Bring soup stock and water to a boil in a large stockpot.
  • Reduce heat and add barley, celery, carrot, onion, garlic, red wine, lemon, pepper, and salt.
  • Cover and simmer for 2 hours, stirring frequently to prevent barley from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add the herbs, tomatoes, and tomato paste and cook for 1 more hour.
  • Leave the lid on during cooking and occasionally check to see if you need to add water.
  • Ladle into soup bowls and sprinkle with grated cheese before serving.
