This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn’t seem to be a lot of variety… and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.
