2 Comments for "Barley Lentil Soup"

I made this soup for a tasting at a farmer's market and it got rave reviews. I also made it at home, and my adult son, who is a DIE HARD carnivore, loved it.  It's great when I can sneak in a vegetarian meal that is so tasty and filling. 

I made this barley lentil soup and added some quinoa and more veggies corn, potatoes, peas, green beans and zucchini. Delisioso!!!
