A Classic Comfort Soup

Fill your tummy while lowering your cancer risk with this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Mushroom Barley Soup. Mushrooms contain compounds called ergosterols, found in some studies to possibly help fight cancer. These phytochemicals go to work in tandem with other health protectors in our soup’s onions, shallots, carrots and herbs.

You also benefit from barley. This whole grain provides hearty fiber and texture. To add even more nutrients, you can top your soup with bright yellow bell peppers, which are a good source of vitamin C and an appetizing garnish.
