    This soup was okay, much better the next day. It was a little bland for our taste. The soy sauce was lost in the soup. If I make this again, I'll add at least a tablespoon of soy sauce and will add chicken.  -  14 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Excellent basic barley soup recipe. The (small) changes I made were to add some squash, no turkey, and red wine instead of wine. Seems to be a very forgiving recipe.  -  03 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
