Hearty Mushroom Barley Soup

It was a dreary, rainy day...a perfect day for a hearty bowl of soup. This is one of my favorite soups and it's very easy to make. I've never really measured anything, so the ingredients listed are approximate values. Get creative and add different kinds of mushrooms or veggies. Let me know how you made out and what adjustments or changes you made. Enjoy!!!

1/2  pint mushrooms, sliced

1/2  pint baby portabello mushrooms, sliced
4-5 carrots, diagonally sliced
3 celery stalks, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 onion coarsely chopped
15 dried day lily, chopped  (optional)
5-6 shiitake mushrooms, soaked and sliced thin
2  Tbsp Chinese Hu Bei (dried fungus or tree ears), soaked and chopped (or any combination of mushrooms)
8  cups vegetable broth
2 cups filtered water
1/2  cups barley, rinsed and sorted
1 bay leaf
1 tsp sea salt, to taste
1 dash Pepper to taste
1 tsp coriander

Heat vegetable broth to a boil in pot and bring to boil
Add all ingredients, cover and let simmer for 1 hour.
Turn to medium low heat and continue to cook another hour.
Taste for seasoning, and serve.
