Step 1

Heat the oil in a large Duch oven, over medium high heat until shimmering.
Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Sir in the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook until the mushrooms are very wet, about 5 minutes. Uncover and continue to cook until the mushrooms are dry and browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in the carrots, garlic, and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

Stir in the broth, water, and barley and bring to a simmer.
Partially cover, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the barley is tender, about 50 minutes.
