Mushroom, Chicken and Barley Soup

I think this is going to be the last soup recipe for this season… It was very hot here in Shanghai last week today it seems like winter is back, it is cold and windy but I am sure Summer will be here soon and I will abandon any hot dishes and embrace salads, grill and baked goods!

But before that, I want to share with you this very tasty and very healthy recipe which calls for mushrooms, chicken and barley.

  • Ingredients:
  • 200 gr barley
  • 1.2 l vegetable broth
  • 500 gr mushrooms
  • 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 1/2 chicken breast (no bone, no skin)
