Reviews for Mushroom Barley Soup for Two
"Maybe I made it wrong, but we found this to be pretty bland. My 1 yr old liked it tho!"
"I made this with couple of changes. I used Bella mushrooms for their great flavor, added 1/2 cup Great Northern beans, used low sodium chicken broth. Will definitely make this again as I love barley soups. I may throw in some chopped kale or collard greens next time."
"I love barley soups and mushrooms so this was a great recipe and perfect for fall. I used low sodium chic broth and a bit less of the soy sauce. I figure I can always add more if needed but like to go light initially. I used Bella mushrooms as I think they have more flavor than others. I will make this again. Also I added about 1/2 cup of Great Northern beans to it. Very good."
"YES! Friends had a "soup Sunday" gathering recently and this is one of the soups I made. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. Several asked for the recipe."
"This is our new favorite soup. EZ, delicious and good for you! I also used low salt broth and soy sauce."
"I just made this soup today. It is delicious and super quick and easy!! I used quick cook barley, added everything at once, brought it to a boil and cooked for 15 minutes. I topped it with a little shredded parmesan. My kitchen smells great and even my dog begged for a bowl. It would be good with green onions sprinkled on top."
"This was wonderful. I substituted a little onion for the garlic. We all loved it."
