Barley Mushroom Soup

Ingredients:
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 lb. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 Tbsp. oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup hulled barley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dill
1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
5 cups water
1-2 carrots

Direction:
In a large pot, combine onion, celery, garlic, and mushrooms with oil and sauté for 5 minutes. Add barley, soy sauce, seasonings, and water. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. About 45 minutes before it’s done, add the chopped carrots.
This soup is surprisingly rich, even without much oil. I have received many favorable responses from others that have made it.
