  1. I have been craving Pho like all week with the cold weather!

    • I actually made this a year ago, photographed it then lost the recipe. My 2 year old brought the recipe to me today. I was so excited, I wanted to recreate it but we don’t eat barley anymore.

  2. Looks so good Holly and easy!! I’ve never actually had barley before but lentils are a favorite of mine. Yum.

  3. I made this in the instant pot. It turned out Amazing!! I used brown, red, and black rice in place of the barley. I only used 1/4 cup rice total like your recipe called for. I used 4 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of your veggie broth mix. I omitted the salt in my broth mix so I ended up adding 1 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt. I pushed the soup button and let it depressureize itself once it was done. It was perfect and SO Tasty!!!!! Thank You Holly

    • Jody I’m so happy to hear this works well in the Instant Pot! I use rice most of the time too! It’s such a hearty fall soup!
      Thanks for the feedback!

    I love this recipe. I have made it many times. One of my favorites. I do add one teaspoon of marjoram though and it really brings it to the next level.
