Recipe Ingredients for Mushroom Barley Soup With Fresh Herbs

0.5 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
8 oz Organic Cremini Mushrooms Packaged
1 medium Squash, Summer, Zucchini, Includes Skin
4 clove Garlic
1 stalk, medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
1 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Tomatoes, Red, Ripe
0.75 cup Barley
6 cup Vegetable Broth
0.042 oz Coarse Kosher Salt
1.5 oz Dill Weed, Fresh
1.5 oz Cilantro

Recipe Directions for Mushroom Barley Soup With Fresh Herbs

  1. Preheat a 4 quart pot over medium heat. Saute the onion in olive oil with a pinch of salt until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add the mushrooms and zucchini, and cook until slightly softened and some of the moisture has been released, about 5 more minutes. Mix in the garlic and saute for a minute or so.

  3. Add celery, tomato, barley, broth, pepper and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer, add herbs, cover again and cook until barley is tender, about 10 minutes. Salt and season to taste. For best results, let it sit for at least 10 minutes uncovered so that the flavors can marry. Serve garnished with extra herbs.
