To kick off the amazing tastes of fall, we’re going to share with you one of our favorite vegetarian recipes: Best Barley Soup. We promise that you are going to love this soup inside and out!

Ingredients

  • 1⁄4 cup whole barley
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1⁄2 cup diced celery
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped onions
  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 cups tomatoes, canned or fresh
  • 1 cup peas, frozen or fresh
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1⁄4 cup minced fresh parsley

Directions

To make the soup:

Cook barley one hour in 6 cups pure water. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until tender. Add peas last, and add parsley just before serving. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, if desired. This soup is great on it’s own, but it’s also good served with our ‘Barley Burgers and Buns’ and ‘Soya Yeast Sandwich Spread’ – two of our awesome vegetarian recipes that we’ll soon share with you on this site!
