      This was a very tasty soup, simple and fast to make. I love barley so this recipe caught my eye. I followed the recipe to the letter and I really enjoyed the soup. Thanks for the recipe, PetitFour!!

      Delicious, hearty and filling... The fresh rosemary really makes this dish stand out! Full of veggies and lots of fiber; it tastes far less healthy than it really is, LOL! Edited to correct stars (don't know how that happened!) and say that this soup gets better with each day it sits in the fridge!

      This soup was very good, though my husband and I both thought it could use a little more barley (and more broth to compensate, of course). We substituted cayenne pepper for the red pepper flakes, and added about a 1/2 cup of red wine for a little more body.
