Vegetable Barley Soup

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

We make this every summer with vegetables from our garden. Our children love to help make this soup and eat it too. I like to double this recipe and freeze the leftovers. You can use any 5 cups of veggies that you like, we just happen to like the carrot/zucchini/cabbage combo.

We really liked this soup. I did not have head cabbage so I used Bok Choy and I used the canned tomatoes. Great flavor with lots of "stuff." Thanks. Diana
