My best friend is always telling me how good barley is and I had yet to try it until this recipe came down the pike.  The soup was easy to make and really made a ton!  I used a few frozen veggies and then threw in fresh carrots, broccoli, and potato.  I feel like there was something else, too, but maybe not. I thought about celery, but didn't end up putting it in.
