Farmhouse Vegetable and Barley Soup

kept byDAPHNE
recipe byCooks Illustrated

ExaMost recipes for hearty winter vegetable soups, it turns out, are neither quick nor easy. For a satisfying soup that doesn’t take the better part of a day to make, we started with canned vegetable broth. To this we added soy sauce and ground dried porcini mushrooms. These ingredients added a savory, almost meaty flavor to the soup base. To make the soup more filling, we added barley to the hearty combination of carrots, potatoes, leeks, cabbage, and turnips.mple: I love this... Next time...
