When I say 5 star, I mean my version...Used Portabella shrooms, extra: garlic and wine, included the tomato fluid, used 2C chicken broth and 1C water to cook the barley for 45 minutes...NOT 30!! I had garbanzo beans so used them inlieu of white beans, as well as frozen "fresh" rosemary versus dry. Then, after reading the top "10 Healthy Foods" on this site...added 1C Yogurt, MAKING it 7 OF THE 10 IN ONE RECIPE!! Also added a tub of tofu for additional 23 grams of protein (besides the 15 grams from a cup of yogurt)...Making this the super complete, healthiest soup known to man!!!

I'm not exactly sure this recipe should be in the Soup collection; however, I very much like the flavor and textures. It is a very dry, thick stew - I ate it with a fork - but I don't know that I'd want more liquid in it. If you like these ingredients, you will most definitely like this recipe! (Note: I did spice it up a bit with jalapeno slices and Tabasco sauce.)

I thought this was one of the best stews I have made yet this season. I used four cups of vegetable broth instead of water to give it extra flavor. Yum!
