  2        Tablespoons  Salad Oil (I used olive oil)

In 3 quart saucepan, combine onions, carrots, celery, oil and garlic.  Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender 8-10 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients, bring to a full boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover; cook until barley is tender, about 20 minutes for quick barley or 35-40 minutes for pearled barley.
