Chicken Soup With Lentils and Barley

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by saleegurl

Delicious, hearty, and healthy soup! From Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. The original recipe calls for 2 T. butter instead of olive oil. And if I have a rind of parmesan leftover, I'll throw it in while it's simmering...but it's very tasty w/o.

I was disappointed in the lack of flavor. Bland in my opinion. Will not make again. I was looking for a different flavor.
