DIRECTIONS

  • Add the oil to a large pot; add in the pancetta.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, over medium heat until the pancetta is lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Add in celery, carrots, onion, and garlic.
  • Cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are golden, about 10 minutes.
  • Add in the beans and 4 cups water; bring to a simmer.
  • Cover and cook over low heat for 30 minutes.
  • Mash some of the beans with the back of a large spoon.
  • Add in the barley, salt, and pepper to taste.
  • Cook 30 minutes or until the barley is tender.
  • Stir the soup frequently so that the barley does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • Add water if the soup is too thick; serve hot or warm.
