This is a very hearty and nutritious vegetarian dish that is great on its own or served in a tortilla.
Used different ingredients. This hearty dish is great. I added white wine to the stock, and fresh spinach at the very end of the cooking time. I also added fresh parsley and cracked red capsicumfor more flavour. I'll make this dish again. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This dish was very easy to put together. I didn't have celery so I substituted carrots, which worked well. I added 1/2 cup more barley, as 3 cups stock is too much for just 1/2 cup barley. Next time I'm going to add sweet potatoes to this wonderful winter dish. - 29 Sep 2008
I enjoyed this even more than I thought I would! Was afraid it would be too "mushroom-y" but it's just fine. Delicious. Also tastes wonderful with the smallest amount of grated fresh Parmesan on top. - 29 Sep 2008
