Default Barley Mushroom Soup

This recipe comes from the Worlds Healthiest Foods website (whfoods.org). It sounds delicious but I'd probably omit the port, maybe use red cooking wine?

Barley Mushroom Soup
Prep and Cook Time: Prep time: 20 min; Cook time: 55 min

Ingredients:

½ cup pearl barley
1 medium onion, chopped fine
3 medium cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled and diced in ¼ inch cubes
2½ cups crimini mushrooms, cut in half and sliced
½ cup Tawny port
6 cups + 1TBS chicken or vegetable broth
1 TBS chopped fresh parsley
1 TBS chopped fresh thyme
½ TBS chopped fresh sage
Salt and black pepper to taste


Directions:

Rinse and soak barley in 1 cup of warm water while preparing rest of ingredients.

Heat 1 TBS broth in a medium soup pot. Healthy Sauté onion, garlic, and carrots in broth for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.

Add mushrooms and continue to sauté for another 3 minutes. Add drained barley and Tawny Port and cook for about 2 minutes.

Add rest of broth, bring to a boil on high heat. Once it comes to a boil reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 40 minutes, or until barley and carrots are tender.

Add herbs, salt and pepper at end of cooking and serve.


Serves 4
