ISO Mushroom Barley Soup recipe with a twist

This week on the dinner list is Mushroom Barley soup.

Ive been making it for years. I usually try to do something similar to the Ratners ( from NYC) Recipe ( if anyone is familiar with that).

This time I want to do something a little different, im just not sure what yet. When I go shopping I may get a few ideas as i walk up and down the aisles, But, I was wondering if anyone throws something unique or different in their recipe, just to throw a little twist into the typical mushroom barley soup.

Im vegetarian ( for those who dont know) , and I have no problems converting a recipe with meat to a veg recipe, I just dont want the ingredient that throws a twist in it to be something meat related.

All ideas welcome,

Thanks in advance,

OK I am not really the one to ask because I do not like most mushrooms, BUT as I was reading your post I thought I saw the word "figs" in your post. I did not, but because I was thinking of it I pictured figs in your soup and something about it made me want to try it. It might be completely disgusting, but something tells me it could be good.

Larry, post your ingredients list so we have a starting point.
