Vegetable Barley Soup

Submitted by: ANDORMEDA7625

Introduction

This is a really hardy soup. The recipe says it serves 4 but I really feel it contains 6 servings. My husband and I could only eat two bowls and we were stuffed! This is a really hardy soup.

    Great idea to add the extras! I think this is a soup you can pretty much add any veggie to and it will be delicious. Glad you enjoyed it - my husband also loved it so it was a real winner in our house (and very filling!)
