Number of Servings: 12


    2 cups Great Northern beans
    1 cup barley
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 cup chopped carrots
    1 tsp garlic
    1 bay leaf
    1 tsp thyme [I use 1 sprig of fresh thyme]
    1 tsp pepper
    8 cups water
    14 ounces low sodium diced tomatoes


Makes 12 one-cup servings

Soak beans overnight in water. Drain.
In a large soup pot or slow cooker combine all ingredients except the tomatoes and simmer until beans are soft.
[2-3 hours on the stove top on on high in the slow cooker, or 4-6 hours on low in the slow cooker. Longer will not hurt the soup]

Approximately 20 minutes before serving, add the tomatoes and allow to heat through.
