My mom absolutely loves this soup. So when I was writing my first recipe book, I asked for her recipe. And I'm really happy I did ask her. Mom's Vegetable Barley Soup is absolutely delicious!
This vegetable barley soup includes nice big chunks of vegetables. I love the combination of all these ingredients. Very flavorful.
I'm unclear if she got this recipe from someone else or just made it up herself but all I know is she has been making it for decades and still to this day makes a batch at least once a month.
It appears that all the women in my life have great soup recipes. My wife makes a mean Chicken Noodle Soup and I just had to share the recipe with all of you. You can find it by following this link Brandi’s Chicken Noodle Soup. Make sure you give that one a try as well.
Ever wonder what Barley is? I mean don't they make beer with Barley? Anyways, here's a little history lesson for you.
An alternative to using chicken broth is Better Than Bouillon. I often use it when I don't have broth on-hand.
