I liked this! I didn't have the kale on hand so I just used spinach celery and carrots. Next time I would probably add 1/3 cup of barley next time. Read More

I loved this recipe. I will definitley make again. I added extra 4 cups of broth 4 sm/med red potatoes with skin and a whole bag of spinach leaves. I also used chicken pulled from previously cooked chicken legs not breasts as the recipe called for. I think the leg meat is more flavorful myself. Read More

I made this using what vegetables I had on hand - a little kale spinach bok choy potato carrot scallions garlic and 3 chicken breasts and it's very good. Used "Better Than Bullion" for broth lower in sodium. Bringing it to a friend recovering from heart surgery. I will save this recipe to use again! Read More

Its on the stove. ROFL! What a job. I think the name of this soup is far too banal. It should be something like Vegetables of the Lost World soup or Chupacabra soup in honor of that strange k named vegetable. Haven't tasted it yet and I will be back to weigh in on that. It's done and it's fab! Everyone warned me oh those turnips will be bitter.... nope! They taste good. And so does that K vegetable. It is a bit bland but I figure a person can add to taste things like pepper or cheese. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

I agree with Laure. A little more barley would be good. Great simple recipe Read More

I forgot to buy a leek so I threw in some diced onion and some fennel I had on hand. My friend can't have barley so I used wild rice instead. And I added celery seed because it needed some more flavor. Everything else was per the recipe and everyone except my 7 yo loved it! Read More

This is a super flexible recipe. We used rutabaga instead of turnip parsnip instead of carrot skipped kohlrabi and added 1/3 cup of barley instead of 1/4. It was excellent. Read More
