If you are a friend of fungi, you will be happy to hear that mushrooms have been praised for their immune-boosting qualities for centuries. This soup combines the healing powers of mushrooms with fiber-rich barley and Vitamin C-rich kale to help defend against germs and bad bacteria.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sweat onions until soft and translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Step 2

Add mushrooms, stirring frequently, cooking until vegetables are caramelized and fragrant. Stir in soy sauce.

Step 3

Cover with stock and bring to a simmer. Add barley, cover and cook 20 minutes.

Step 4

Remove soup from heat. Stir in kale and thyme leaves. Divide into bowls and serve.
