Recipe by: The New McDougall Cookbook Place 2 cups of the water in a large soup pot. Add the whole garlic cloves and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove the garlic cloves and mash them thoroughly before proceeding. (Use a potato masher or process in a blender or food processor.) Add the remaining 21/2 quarts water, the barley, and the wild rice. Bring to a boil, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to cook until tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Ths soup tastes best if allowed to cool and then reheated. Make it several days ahead, or make with the intention of freezing for later use.
