DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the cepes in a little water for 15 minutes, until they soften.
  • Chop all the vegetables finely in 2 batches in the food processor and put them in a pan with the barley and all the water (including the mushroom-soaking water).
  • Chop the softened mushrooms in the food processor, and add them to the pot.
  • Bring to the boil, remove the scum, season with plenty of salt and pepper, and simmer for 1 hour, or until the barley is very soft and plump.
  • The barley will thicken the soup.
  • Add water if necessary, to thin it.
  • Serve with sour cream, especially if the soup was made with water instead of broth.
