This is an awesome soup that I make and freeze in individual servings to take to work for lunch. You can also use pot barley, but it will have to cook longer. Enjoy!

Superb soup. I used homemade defatted beef stock. Loved all the chunky vegetables. Quite filling and left me feeling very satisfied. Thanks for posting this healthy soup recipe.
