How to make it
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and half of the minced garlic and cook until the onions are transluscent. Mix in the carrots and cook for around 5 minutes.
- Add the barley and lentils and stir so they are coated with oil. Continue to cook (remember to stir frequently, so they don't stick to the bottom) for another 2-3 minutes.
- Mix in the vegetable broth and seasoning (thyme, basil, sage, pepper and the bay leaf) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes.
- Add the mushrooms, red pepper, potato and remaining garlic. Cover and continue cooking for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
