Full of Flavor!!! And so YUMMY!!!

A fairly quick, simple and hearty soup!

I've made many barley soups over the years, but tonight I just decided to wing it, writing things down as I went. Turned out great so I had to post it.

Enjoy! :o)

How to Make Chicken Mushroom Barley Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. In a 4 qt pan over medium high heat add butter and olive oil, when butter is melted and bubbly add onions, celery, carrots and mushrooms. Cook stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes then add salt, pepper, garlic, thyme and tomato paste. Continue to cook 3 more minutes then add broth, water and barley. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer 30-40 minutes. Add in chicken and simmer another 15 minutes. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired.
    Enjoy! :o)
  2. *I buy tomato paste in a tube, so I can add a touch of it here and there to dishes I make. It can be found by the canned tomato sauces.
