About this recipe: This is a delicious mushroom soup, which is easy to make. Mushrooms are simmered with barley in a chicken stock. It's the perfect soup for the cold winter months.
I veganised this using veg stock no it was good and hearty, my 10 month old loved it too. - 30 Sep 2015
I love pearly barley, like in Scotch Broth, and had a kilo of mushrooms to use up. This was ideal. Easy to make - I used chicken stock from boiling the carcass from Sunday's lunch. Didn't need bread or anything else. A healthy option for a damp day. - 11 Jan 2013
Very nice! Here is idea you might also try. Put the barley on a sheet pan and toast lightly in oven at 350 degrees for about 5 mins or longer depending on your oven. It really brings the barley flavor out! - 14 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
