Hearty Bean & Barley Soup

(4)

This hearty soup makes a warming and satisfying meatless meal.  And it’s so easy to change this up and add your favorites.  Not a fan of kidney beans? Try garbanzo or cannellini beans.  Kale or arugula make a great substitute for spinach.  Serve with crusty bread or stir in some croutons for extra crunch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the carrots, celery and onion. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. 

Step 2

Stir the broth, beans, tomatoes and barley in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 30 minutes or until the barley is tender.

Step 3

Stir in the spinach and cook until the spinach is wilted.  Season to taste.

Recipe Tips

  • Recipe Twist: Arugula can add lively, peppery flavor to this hearty soup.  Try substituting baby arugula leaves for some of the spinach in this recipe.
