Course Soup
Servings 4 People



  • 7 cups water
  • 1/3 cup tamari soy sauce
  • 1/2 onion medium diced
  • 2 ribs celery medium diced
  • 3/4 pound mushrooms sliced
  • 1 cup barley rinsed


  • 1 teaspoon pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt to taste
  • 4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 4 Tablespoons white spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 cup soymilk


  1. Start the water and tamari mixture in a large soup pot. Add the onion, celery, mushrooms and barley. Bring this to a boil. In a separate bowl, mix the thicker. Use a whisk and be sure to eliminate all lumps. Set aside. Once the soup pot comes to a boil and the barley is tender, add the thickener slowly while stirring the soup. Let it simmer, stirring as to not burn the soup, for about 15 minutes.
