We had this wonderful soup for dinner last night. I used homemade
vegetable stock and eliminated the oil in the original recipe. Next time I
might add a package of drained/pressed/cut up tofu in addition or in place
of 1 cup of mushrooms.

A more elegant version of the soup uses wild mushrooms. Thin the soup with
more stock if desired.

barley and bring to boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, 25 minutes
until potatoes are soft. Transfer to large bowl, leaving 1/2 cup liquid in
Bring to simmer. Add onions and cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add
mushrooms and garlic and cook 10 minutes until mushrooms exude moisture.
Return reserved barley-potato mixture to pot. Add basil and parsley and
bring to boil. Lower heat. Cover and cook 15 minutes until flavors blend.
