I followed the recipe instructions and it ended up looking more like risotto than soup. All the liquid was absorbed by the barley before the barley was nice and cooked. I thought it tasted very good but for some reason when I took it out of the fridge to take to work for lunch, I remember thinking 'I wish I had something else to take' but then once I had put it in my mouth and swallowed it, then it was ok and I enjoyed eating it.

This is a very good healthy soup. The other review stated there was not any broth left, they might not have added the 3 cups of water that is in the instructions. Mine came out great with plenty of broth. I used baby portabello mushrooms and fresh herbs. For meat lovers some cooked chicken breast could be added.

I made this soup today and it was wonderful. The only thing I did different was add some celery and some tomatoes. Will definately make again.

Pretty good, husband really like it too! I left out the carrots, and I also added ground beef to soup.
