vegetable barley soup

A chunky meal of a soup, healthy and cheap.

Ingredients:
5 or 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 leeks cut into round slices
3 carrots, roughly chopped
5 celery sticks, cut onto chunks
1 cup of dried pearl barley
a few leaves of dark green cabbage, kale or other greens, chopped
enough water to cover
Salt and pepper to taste

Very simple to prepare this one! Place all your vegetables except the chard in a large pan with the barley. Cover well with water, boil and simmer until everything is cooked. Add the greens and salt and cook for another 5 minutes. The pictured version above was enriched with Vecon Stock

  1. Some great frugal recipes here but I would just like to point out that barley contains gluten. You might want to change the label on this recipe.
