Barley Lentil Soup with Mushrooms and Kale

Recipe by: kayell

Servings: 6

Dry sauté onions over moderate heat until they start to brown, then add mushrooms. When they begin to sweat, add garlic. Sauté a minute or two more, then add water, lentils, barley, carrots, herbs, chipotle and paprika. Simmer until lentils and barley are soft. Add kale and green onions. Simmer another 10 minutes, then add vinegar, stir and serve.

(I don't add any salt in cooking, but do find this this needs some. I added several splashes of chipotle tabasco sauce at the table which adds some salt, without the excess that would come from cooking with it. Extra vinegar or lemon juice would be good for those who can't have any salt, or don't like that much heat.)

Serving size - about 2 cups
