“Thicker than a soup, which this was intended to be, and not quite enough for a stew, we have an inbetweener. I use home made vegetable stock, recipe is also posted on my page. I like to use cream of leek soup mix, but almost anything works, totally your choice, adds extra flavor. The barley cooks in 1 hour, I usually cook mine for 2, or even until we're ready to eat, the flavors just get better over time.”
