The hardest part of making this soup is buying the right barley. Read the package and make sure it’s quick-cooking “pearled” barley.
3 cups fresh mushrooms, any variety
1 tsp. olive oil
1 tsp. light margarine
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup quick barley
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups water
1 14.5-oz. can petite diced tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley or other herb
Brush mushrooms to remove any soil that may be clinging to them. Rinse under cool water and drain. Trim stems and cut into bite-sized pieces, remembering that mushrooms shrink when cooked.
Heat olive oil and margarine in a large soup pot. Add onion and mushrooms. Stir till onions are wilted and mushrooms give up their moisture. Add barley, broth, water, and tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes or until barley is tender.
Turn off heat. Use a vegetable peeler to put thin strips of carrot into soup. Add parsley.
