Ingredients

1 tbsp  olive oil
2 each  fresh leeks
3 each  medium garlic cloves
3 cup  fresh mushroom slices
0 1/2 oz  instant mushroom soup, dry packet
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
1 tbsp  soy flour
7 cup  cold water
0 1/4 cup  soy milk
1 cup  cooked barley
Directions
  1. In a medium soup pot, prepare leeks and garlic the Enlitened way (see step 4). Add mushrooms, seasoning and liquid. Bring to a boil then simmer on medium heat for 25-30 minutes.
  2. Let soup cool. Fish out a few mushrooms for garnish, then sprinkle with soy or regular flour and blend with an immersion blender or process in food processor with knife blade.
  3. Boil soup on high heat for 1 minute. Turn off heat and add soy milk (and barley, if desired), then stir. Make sure not to boil after adding the soy milk, so that it does not curdle. Return unblended mushrooms for garnish.
  4. To prepare leeks and garlic - Heat 2 tablespoons of oil together with the cooking spray in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for a few seconds. Add the leeks and onions; stir and lower heat. Cook until the leeks and onions start to brown. Stir occasionally. Add 3 cloves garlic (peeled and minced) and water; the mixture will start to brown. Cook another few minutes, scraping the bottom of the pan so that nothing sticks.
