With fall here, the soup starts to simmer in the kitchen. One of my favorites is from my mother. This Beef Barley Vegetable Soup is meaty with big chunks of vegetables and the broth is to die for. I usually cut my carrots and celery into 1/2" or a bit larger chunks. I also keep the onion cut on the larger side instead of chopping finely. It's easy to make, tasty to eat, and warms the body. Serve with a nice crusty bread.
