    **Jubes**'s Note:

    My husband loves lamb shanks- basically anyway that they can be cooked. To make this dish gluten free, substitute the pearl barley for split peas or lentils. Serve garnished with chopped parsley and some crusty bread or cornbread on the side. A protein packed meal in a bowl. This can be finely processed for babies and frozen in serving sizes.

      Really tasty and substantial soup that made an ideal winter dinner. I used the beef stock option which I thought might have been a bit strong for the lamb but the flavours worked really well together.
