Wow, wow, wow!! When your hubs walks in the door and says that dinner smells great and brings in a loaf of crusty french bread you know dinner is going to be liked! I added chicken to my soup and used a bit less broth than was called for because we like our soups a little more like stew.
This is the first time I have used turmeric and garam masala for cooking and they will definitely make a repeat performance in my kitchen. I have also never cooked barley before and that was a nice surprise in this dish as well! Every one liked this and we have leftovers for lunch today!
Check out French Fridays with Dorie to see how other cooks around the world liked this soup.
