When making this soup, I tend to clean out the refrigerator by adding all kinds of leftovers. In fact, my family says they have to watch out for the kitchen sink!

"A good, basic recipe that is very flexible. I added more seasoning (Mrs. Dash, garlic powder, onion powder), as per my family's preference, as well as a can of beef gravy. With all the leftover vegetables I had on hand, this recipe made a huge pot of soup. I even froze a portion of it. If you have never cooked barley before, don't be intimidated---it is easy. I followed the package directions and it turned out perfect."

"Great comfort food!! The recipe lends itself to making substitutions, going with whatever leftovers your refrigerator has. I added gravy from the pot roast I fixed the other day."
