Barley Soup

Barley soup

Yields about 1 ½ gallon of soup


1 small cabbage

1 cup barley soaked overnight

2 carrots sliced

1 medium onion diced

1 red pepper1 green pepper diced

5-6 tomatoes peeled and diced (or use 1 can of diced tomatoes) optional

salt, pepper to taste

In a hot pot, add some oil of your choice (I used canola since olive oil is loosing its properties when cooked. If you like, you can add some olive oil to the soup after it is finished as it provides flavor and is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids.)

Add the vegetables and sautee for 10-15 minutes being careful not to overcook them.

Add barley including the water it was soaking in. add water or vegetable stock to cover the vegetables. Simmer for 30-35 minutes. DO NOT OVERCOOK as the veggies will be mush !
