Mushroom & Barley Soup

Mushroom & Barley Soup

To cut the cooking time in half, soak the barley overnight when planning for this healthy soup.


  • 1 1/2 cups pearled barley, soaked in 4 cups filtered water overnight, drained, and rinsed
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 2 carrots, scrubbed or peeled, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cups of filtered water
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a medium-large stockpot, place the drained barley, onion, celery, carrots, and mushrooms. Add the stock and 2 cups of filtered water. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the barley is completely cooked and thickened.
  • Season to taste with sea salt. Add more water or stock if the soup is too thick for your liking.
