Easy to make and delicious. Veggie stock, barley and lots of veggies make this soup hearty and filling. Please add a review if you make it. Enjoy!
Yes I also tweeked this recipe only because I had some soup bones I wanted to use. I love the addition of curry powder and Worcestershire sauce in this delicious wholesome soup, not something I would normally add so thanks for sharing - 24 Apr 2017
Original recipe is 5 star and perfect for my vegetarian friends. Personally, I am a carnorvoire and have tried variations of this soup and all have been wonderful including the original posting. Try the following suggestions if you'd like to change it up: 1.) 1/2 vegetable and 1/2 beef broth to replace all vegetable broth. 2.) Add diced red meat - if using a tougher cut, let it simmer in the broth until tender making sure your liquid doesn't reduce down much before adding the carrots and celery. The beef imparts a much richer flavor. 3.) 1/2 cup cooked barley is sufficient for this recipe, otherwise the barley soaks up the liquid. Enjoy!!! - 19 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
i should have warned about the pepper! you should only use the very fine black pepper that most stores sell... if you use fresh coarse black pepper it will ruin the recipe! if you're not sure, omit the pepper and season to taste later. - 22 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
