I cook my barley seperately and add it to the bowls when serving the soup. That way, everyone can take the amount they want!

I too have been watching my sodium. I like to use herbs, Basil, cilantro and italian parsley are some of my favorites. I also like the Mrs. Dash blends if I am using dried herbs.

I did put onions in mine. The zucchini sounds like a great addition.

I put in onions, zucchini and some Mrs Dash as well as a packet of beef gravy mix (?)...might have been herb gravy, but it was a packet of gravy mix that went well with everything. Doesn't do a lot for watching the sodium, but helps a lot on the flavor!

1) Quick-cooking barley swells up a lot more than you might think. I ended up with WAY too much barley in this soup. I suspect that I'll have a lot of beef-flavored barley once the beef, carrots and mushrooms run out. Oh well, I can freeze it for side dishes with hamburger, I guess.

2) I used a lot of richly flavored ingredients in it: beef, mushrooms, carrots and unsalted beef broth. I'm trying to cut down on sodium and I thought those flavors would be enough. It did taste good, but there was something a bit missing. Pepper, maybe? Possibly a few herbs, but I didn't know what.

Try, try again...
