Barley Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 53mins
Recipe by The Veganista

Have sad looking vegetables? Don't throw them away! Make this wonderful veggie soup. The zucchini is added last otherwise it will become mush.

Made this today for DH and I for our lunch. I did cut the recipe down and used yellow squash for the zucchini (didn't have one) and towards the end for DH I put some roasted chicken in that I had left (he loves meat in most of his soups). Oh yes, I did use freshly made chicken stock and added some italian seasoning to the soup. Very good and one I will definately make again. Thank you. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game and also Topic of the Month Forum's Soup-Fest 2011 tag game.
