      I made this last night and my husband (the vegetable hater) loved it. I used brown rice instead of barley just because that is what I had on hand and sprinkled a little grated Parmigiano Reggiano on top. It was very delicious - so glad you posted it Mirjam.

      A tasty and straight-foreward recipe. I also added Parmesan to the broth. Be sure to saute the initial mixture enough time or the broth will be watery. I will make it again.
