Barley always takes me back to childhood winters with hearty, warming soups and this one is no exception. We follow a low carb diet so, with the barley, we substituted the potatoes with sweet potatoes and we did not have any green beans so added some cauliflower and broccoli closer to the end of the cooking time. It is good and, just like the recipe says, we ate very last drop.

Omigosh I'm drooling watching the video for this soup. Chunky veggies in any soup has always been my favorite way of making it. The broth alone looks so rich and flavorful...I could probably eat it alone with bread and be a happy girl. lol I've just recently started using wine in cooking and I have to say, it really does make a difference in the depth of flavor it provides.

This looks like a delicious soup. It reminds me of my the soups I grew up with which my mother made every winter. With her soup she always made sure she saved the bone of a roast (whichever kind, it didn't matter) and then used that as a base for added soup flavor.

I love love love beef and veggie soup, I can't wait to try out this recipe!
