Method: 
Heat a large soup pot over high heat. Add onion, carrots and potatoes. Cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes, stirring often. If the mixture begins to burn, simply lower the heat and add a couple of tablespoons of water. Once mixture is browned, add thyme, rosemary, bay leaf, barley and 7 cups water. Stir well to combine. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, partially cover, and simmer until barley is tender, about 40 minutes. Turn off the heat, remove bay leaf and add chives and frozen peas. Stir until peas are heated through and serve.
