MoFo 28 Video and Crazy Boy's Barley Soup Recipe

Anybody else writing up their final MoFo 2012 while wearing their Halloween costume?  As usual I shot for 31 posts and fell just short with 28 posts. I know I know I owe you a soup recipe from Psycho Boy and a parfait recipe from me. Look for Psycho Boy's recipe after the video. Hey if you are here for the Virtual Pot Luck Weclome. My entry was just before this, but do stay for the video :)

Here's the recipe Crazy Boy/Psycho Boy handed me. Please note I did not edit it. Perhaps you can now get a glimpse into PB's inner sanctum. 

He calls it Crazy Boy's Famous Crazy Mushroom Barley Soup

2 C pearl barley
6 C organic hearty veggie broth
1 lb  mushrooms sliced (his word) mediumly?
spray oil
1/2 large onion sliced and diced
2 large cloves of garlic minced
1 C baby carrots chopped
1 medium yukon sliced
1 tofurky sausage sliced nice
2 tsp each dried oregano, dried, basil, dried thyme

salt and pepper to taste
more water if the soup is getting too thick.

In your soup pot spray or add oil. and saute onion, garlic tofurky, potato and carrots until a bit brown. Stir. Sprinkle on herbs. Stir. Add salt and pepper. Stir. Add veggie broth, stir and stir. 
(no wonder he's stir crazy)
Bring it all to a boil then bring it Down to a gentle simmer.
Cook 40-45 minutes or until your barley is at your chewable desire. 
I am a mother hen stirring the pot. 
Add or don't add water for your preferred thickness.
Go crazy and enjoy your soup.


  1. Ha, ha! Awesome video! Too funny! That soup looks so hearty and tasty! It's similar to a soup I love to make but with lentils in addition to barley. It's one of my favorites. Isn't barley so wonderfully chewy?
