This is the soup that I always make when I feel like I’m coming down with a cold. This mushroom barley soup is so nutritious and it’s an easy meal to make to give your immune system a healthy boost!
I try to focus on naturally boosting my immune system by eating a lof of whole foods and lots of leafy greens, and by taking supplements like vitamin C, zinc, black elderberry syrup, and oregano oil if I need a boost.
However, this soup is not just for when you’re feeling sick, this is a delicious soup to make for a super healthy, whole food plant based dinner! You could serve this soup with a roasted sweet potato and a big salad on the side for a very satisfying meal.
