Badger, Badger, Badger...

Inspired by the yummy looking mushroom and barley soup picture that we saw in the Penzeys One magazine (vol 3, iss 5, 2009, pg 50) that we acquired during a recent excursion to Penzeys, Bug created a delicious pot of soup.

9 cups chicken broth
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 lb fresh mushrooms, quartered
2 carrots, chopped
6 shiitake, sliced
1 chicken breast, sliced
6 cups cabbage, chopped
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried oregano, bay leaf, thyme blend
1/2 cup barley

Bug took about 2-1/2 hours to prep and cook. The barley was made separately and set aside, so it could be added to each bowl before serving.

Mushroom and barley soup

The soup was clear, but well-seasoned with a pronounced chicken, shiitake, celery, and herbal flavor. There was no greasiness, which made me extremely happy. The soup was l-o-a-d-e-d with mushrooms, mushrooms!

...but no snakes!
