Barley Soup

Last Updated On: 3/10/09

Brocho before eating this:

Generally (with or without mushrooms), Borei Minei Mezonos

However, if it is a clear soup with very few barley, say Shehakol Niyeh Bedvoro on the soup and Borei Minei Mezonos on the barley

Brocho after eating the proper shiur of this (Barley): Al Hamichya [if a proper shiur is only eaten of the soup then say Borei Nefashos]
