Plain or fancy...sometimes there is nothing better! This is a basic, easily adaptable recipe. A good stock is the key.
Sautee the onion, garlic, & celery in large stock pot. Add stock. Add veggies & barley. Add bayleaf. Simmer 2 hours or until desired doneness. Adjust liquid if needed & add spices the last hour or so of cooking. Remove bay leaves before serving.
Add beans or leftover meat for more protein. Substitute regular rice for the barley.
Do not add mushrooms if you want to freeze some of this, as they will be chewy when thawed.
