In a large stock pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and carrots and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir occasionally to see if more oil is needed to prevent sticking and burning
Add the garlic and stir – cook 30 seconds to 1 minute or until fragrant
Add the mushrooms and cook until their liquid is released, about 4 minutes
Add both broths, water, vinegar, tomato paste, spices and bay leaf. (NOTE: if you want a thicker soup you can use an immersion blender at this point BEFORE adding the bay leaf to desired consistency, that’s what I did)
Bring to a boil and immediately turn down to simmer
Add the barley and cook 45 minutes – 1 hour or until barley is tender
Remove the bay leaf and check for seasoning. Add more seasonings if necessary and enjoy!
