“This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn't seem to be a lot of variety... and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.” - by MRSARAB

"Wonderful soup! Hit the spot on a cold Winter's day! Immediately upon reading this recipe, I knew I had to use more of some of the ingredients ~ I used three carrots, 1/2 cup barley, three cloves of g..." See morearlic and a tad more Italian seasoning. I also used hot Italian sausage. I might take the advice of other reviewers and add a can of diced tomatoes next time too! Another thing...this feeds way more the four people it says. My large crockpot was overflowing! That's not a problem, though, because now I have some for the freezer!"
"This is my new FAVORITE soup! I used hot sausage and it was amazingly good. Doubled up on the seasoning and garlic and used one bag of baby carrots. AWESOME!..." See more"
"This is a really good and hearty soup. I used 8 c of chicken broth, 3 carrots (per other reviewers) and doubled the amount of barley, since I'm a huge barley fan. I cooked the soup in the crock pot ..." See morefor 8 hours (overnight) and then put in the fridge to later be heated up when I got home from work. I think it really let the flavors marry. Maybe next time I will try making this with hot Italian sausage (use bulk; easier to cook) and will keep the sausage in bigger pieces. I will definitely be making this one again!"
