Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 large carrots peeled & chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 12 ounces portobello mushrooms chopped
  • 7 ounces white mushrooms chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked pearl barley
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prep your onion, carrots, and celery. Add them to a large pot along with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  2. Meanwhile, chop the mushrooms. 
  3. Stir the mushrooms into the pot and sauté for another 5 minutes. 
  4. Add the Italian seasoning, garlic, vegetable broth, water, and barley to the pot. Increase heat to high and bring the soup to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until the barley is cooked (it should be al dente, not mushy). 
  5. Season with salt & pepper as needed. Garnish with parsley if desired.
