Curry Vegetable Barley Soup

This thick and hearty soup has a subtle kick to it, but if you prefer a bit more heat, increase the curry paste to 1 tbsp. Cooking the mushrooms on the side gives them a nice golden colour and prevents them from becoming waterlogged in the broth.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 carrots diced
  • 1 rib celery diced
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Thai red curry paste
  • 4 cups cubed peeled rutabaga (about 1-3/4 lb/790 g)
  • 4 cups cubed seeded peeled winter squash (about 2 lb/900 g), such as butternut, buttercup or acorn
  • 1/2 cup pot barley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 oz mushrooms sliced
  • 3 cups packed baby spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

Method

In large Dutch oven, heat half of the oil over medium heat; cook onion, carrot and celery, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.

Add garlic, ginger and curry paste; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in rutabaga, squash, barley, salt, pepper and 7 cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until barley is tender, about 40 minutes.

Transfer 2 cups of the soup to heatproof bowl or blender. Using immersion blender, purée until smooth. Return to pot.

Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, stirring occasionally, until golden and no liquid remains, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir into soup. Stir spinach, cilantro and lime juice into soup; cook over medium heat until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
