Mushroom Barley Soup, easy to make it vegan - sub veg for beef broth. I doubled the recipe and added chopped carrots w/ the garlic, some chopped spinach at the end, and left out the salt/miso (subbed 1 tsp Williams Sonoma mushroom soup boullion).
Pair lentils with your favorite vegetables to make this flavorful, hearty soup from Martha Stewart. There's no better way to warm up on a cold day than with a lentil soup. Add up to a cup more water if the lentil soup becomes too thick during cooking.
