I love barley so much. Take a look at my Jazzed Up Cholent Soup, with Black Barley, or my couscous recipe, using barley couscous
Attention Gluten-Free friends: Mushroom Barley Soup is for you too!
Brown or wild rice or steel-cut oats will be a great substitute for the barley.
This recipe makes a great big batch of mushroom barley soup
Please don’t divide it; once you got that pot going, and you did all that dicing, you deserve the reward of finding a container or two in your freezer on one of these chilly nights when you were to harried to cook! It will be ready when you are. It freezes perfectly, by the way! Just sayin’!
Attention Carb Counters:
Don’t attempt a Grain-Less Mushroom Barley Soup!

No problem shredding all the vegetables instead of dicing them:
You will go much faster. The food processor will do it all for you!
