Mushroom Barley Soup
This soup restores vigor and health in adults and children who were weak and ill. It will also benefit your urinary tract, especially if you are prone to bladder infection. Barley is an old European remedy for this problem, garlic treats infection and mushrooms boost the immune system.
¼ cup barley
¾ cup soup stock
2½ cups water
2 teaspoons tamari (or ¼ teaspoon salt)
½ cup chopped onion
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
½ pound fresh medicinal mushrooms (such as shiitake)
black pepper to taste
Cook barley in soup stock until tender. Add water and tamari. In a separate pan, sauté onions and garlic in olive oil. When onions are transparent, add mushrooms. When mushrooms and onions are tender, add them to the barley-tamari mixture. Sprinkle in black pepper, cover and simmer gently for 20 minutes.
For variety, add cooked vegetables of your choice, either chopped or grated.
