Mushroom Barley Soup
2 stalks celery
2-4 cloves garlic
1 lb. fresh mushrooms
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 c. barley
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
1 t. dill
1 t. chopped fresh parsley
10 c. water
In a large pot, combine chopped onions, celery, garlic, and mushrooms.
Add some water to the veggies so they don't stick to the pot.
Saute for about 4 minutes, then add barley, soy sauce, seasonings,
and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer (either covered or not)for
2-3 hours. Forty-five minutes before it is done, add chopped
carrots. Tastes better next day.
