Thank you! Amazing soup! I made it today and my husband and I are eating it up with a loaf of Olive Bread! I changed one thing- I added about 6 cloves of garlic, finely chopped for a boost! We love garlic! The soup is a dream! I cant wait to make it for my family one day. Deeeeliciousness! Im a huge fan of Brussel Sprouts and they are in season RIGHT NOW! Thank you so much! YUMMINESS!

So many of my favorite veggies & nutrient super stars are in this soup! I figured it would be tasty. However, the sodium content is alarming: over 1,100 miligrams per serving!!! Not cool! So I altered the cooking method to bring out more flavor sans sodium. I used frozen turnips with greens & added celery. I sauted onion, celery, carrots, and a bay leaf in a tsp of oil. Then added the other veggies and about 3 Tbls of roughly chopped garlic. Sauted a about 10 min. Then added 12 cups of water and 4 Tbls of Better than Boullion (which brought the sodium to over 2,400 miligrams for the whole pot, or 240 per serving). I cooked the barley on the side to save time and skipped the flour/butter to save calories and because I prefer a brothy soup. Hearty, filling, and, with a few modifications, healthy!
