Easy Mushroom Barley Soup

October 9, 2012

family-plate-5-blurOk, if you love mushrooms and you love soup then you want to make this recipe.  It’s a soup my mother-in-law taught me last year when I was on maternity leave and had time to make soups!  Seriously, it’s very easy and yields many servings so I usually freeze half and enjoy the rest all week.  I make it even easier by using the pre-sliced mushrooms. We had some last night before dinner and it was full of flavor and very filling.


3 10 oz. containers of pre-washed and sliced mushrooms (feel free to mix varieties of mushrooms)

1-3 cloves of garlic, finely minced or put through a garlic press

1 tsp olive oil

1/2 onion chopped

3 tablespoons Osem Mushroom Soup Mix

8 cups of water

1/2 cup barley

Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions: Saute onions (with a dash of salt) in olive oil in a large pot until they are translucent, add garlic, let saute another 1-2 minutes, add mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes or until all the mushrooms are softening.  Add pepper if desired. Add 8 cups of water and Osem Mushroom Soup mix and bring to a boil.  Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer.  Add barley, let simmer on low heat for 30-40 minutes until barley is soft. Should make at least 8 servings.  Enjoy!
