I would probably use a pretty flavorful veggie stock since the
seasoning in this recipe is minimal...

      Barley and Vegetable Soup

           3/4 cup medium pearl barley
           11 cups vegetable stock
           2 T. saute liquid (stock/wine/water)
           1 1/2 cups chopped onion
           1 cup chopped carrots
           1/2 cup chopped celery
           1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
           salt to taste
           1/2 bunch parsley
              * In a saucepan, combine the barley and
                3 cups of vegetable stock. Bring to a
                boil over medium heat, cover, and
                simmer for 1 hour, or until the
                liquid is absorbed.
              * Meanwhile, heat the saute liquid in a
                large pot and add the onion, carrots,
                celery, and mushrooms. Cover and
                sweat the vegetables for about 5
                minutes, until they begin to soften.
              * Add the remaining vegetable stock and
                simmer 30 minutes, covered.
              * Add the barley and simmer 5 minutes
                more. Add salt to taste and ladle
                into bowls. Serve garnished with some
                chopped fresh parsley.
