"Designer soups," as Jordon Carroll calls chef-inspired pureed soups, often have lots of added butter and cream. She prefers old-fashioned ones like this mushroom-barley, which gets its flavor from good-quality beef stock.    More Fast Soups  

How to Make It


In a large saucepan, combine the beef stock with the carrot, celery, onion, mushrooms and barley and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover partially and cook over moderately low heat until the barley and vegetables are tender, 30 minutes. Season the soup with salt and pepper. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with parsley and serve.

Make Ahead

The mushroom-barley soup can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
