  1. Put the pot on the stove and turn the heat to medium. When it is hot, carefully add the oil.
  2. Add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and thyme and cook until tender, 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms and barley and stir well.
  4. Add the broth, raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. As soon as the soup boils, turn the heat down to low and cook, partially covered, for 2–2 1/2 hours, stirring frequently.
  5. Now taste the soup. Does it need anything to boost the flavor? More thyme? A squeeze of lemon juice? A pinch of salt or a grinding of black pepper? Add whatever you think it needs, then serve right away or transfer to a container, cover and refrigerate up to 3 days.

Recipe Tips

Substitute brown or wild rice for the barley. Add 1/4 cup fresh or frozen corn kernels, chopped       tomatoes, or baby spinach 10 minutes before you’re finished cooking.
