Mushroom and Barley Soup Recipe

Easy vegetarian mushroom and barley soup recipe with ingredients, instructions and alternative beef addition:

This first easy to make mushroom and barley soup recipe has been kindly provided by Michelle Clay from her book The Pantry Cookbook.

This should take about 50 minutes to cook and can be left unattended for most of this time. She has chosen to omit ingredient weights so that you can build your own taste after a few tries. She also suggests substituting any other type of grain and vegetables making this ideal for those who like it thicker. It makes a great winter warmer, is filling and can be made very cheaply.

The Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy is my latest novel about the ghost of a Gordon Highlander Drummer Boy from the Battle of Waterloo who haunts a modern day army nurse.

Chapters take place in modern day Aberdeen, at the Noose & Monkey bar and restaurant as well as His Majesty’s Theatre and Garthdee. Other scenes take place at Tidworth and during the Napoleonic War.

Read the first three chapters for free on most devices.

These ingredients are given as a guide only. When we made ours we added celery and parsnip as additional ingredients. Use seasonal vegetables because these will be cheaper to purchase.

Uncooked barley or other grain

Sliced mushrooms

Vegetable stock

Chopped vegetables such as beet, onion, carrot or greens

Salt and pepper to taste

Beef and Barley Soup Recipe

The above can easily be adapted to those who do not want the vegetarian option. Michelle Clay recommends using stew meat of any sort and is especially useful for using up tough stew meat in the freezer which can be cooked from frozen.

Ingredients for Beef and Barley Soup

Fresh or frozen stew meat of any sort

Beef or vegetable stock

Chopped vegetables

Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make Beef and Barley Soup

Put the beef or other meat with the grain in a pot and bring to a gentle boil. After about 30 minutes remove the meat from the pot and cut into bite sized pieces and then return them to the pot. When they are almost tender enough to eat add the chopped vegetables. Continue to boil until the veg and grain are tender then add the salt and pepper depending on your taste.
