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."
"I had purchased barley to make another soup recipe and was looking for other recipes that include barley. This soup dish was a big hit with us - will be making this soup again."
"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."
