I'm vegan and my family is not and we all loved it! It looks soupy when I opened the instant pot lid but it thickened up overnight which I like it a little thicker so it was perfect. If you prefer it soupy I would think you could warm it up on the stove and just add a little water. Either way we liked it a lot and I'll definitely make it again. It was really easy to make.

You need to Make far too many Substitutions and additions in order to make this dish edible. And even after all of that, It's just not that good. Read More

Followed the recipe exactly and we used the Kitchen Basics unsalted vegetable stock. We used an Instant Pot 6 qt and let it natural release for 30 minutes. Pretty perfect. Read More

Made this according to directions with the exception of the tomatoes-I used garden fresh rather than canned. I also didn't have bay leaves so added garden fresh basil. This soup turned out quite watery initially but thickened up after letting it sit for a while. It was very delicious! Read More

We loved the soup. Just a great meal for a cold day. I love barley and not many recipes use barley. Read More

Easy to change the veggies in this dish and make it your own. Adding beans spinach or lentils would all be great. My girlfriend just told me to take it away from her or she'll eat it all. I personally prefer it with half the amount of broth. Turns out less soupy and more of a hearty filling and satisfying meal. Read More

Very Good. To give mine a little more zing I added canned diced tomatoes with green chiles and a little less pepper. It was a hit. Very good soup even with the chiles. Read More
