    Barley Grass belongs to a family of grasses called cereal grasses. During the first part of the 20th century, the juice of barley grass was discovered to be rich in vitamins and minerals.

    Thanks for this recipe! Made it today with a friend.
    She doesn't like celery so we used a couple of leeks instead. For extra veg we added sweet potato and cauliflower – it was delicious!

      Oh my I saw the snow falling on the Today Show. You are right, perfect for a snowy day. Vegetable broth works great. We use a lot of bone broth due to the fact that my daughter has Colitis and there are "gut" healing properties in bone broth. Who knew? thank you for your comment.

    Thank you for such a wonderful soup recipe. I've never used barley before, and it was amazing in this! I even used the beef stock recipe. You have so many great recipes, it's kind-of you to share them.:)

      I'm so happy to hear you loved the soup. My daughter has been researching the benefits of making your own broth and has found that it has healing properties. That just bumps up the nutrition. Thanks for sending me your note. You made my day.

    My mom always made chicken vegetable soup too! With barley or sometime lentils. Funny how food is tied to so many of our memories, isn't it?

    This looks delicious and healthy and perfect for our cool days! Thank you for the recipe. I will tackle this next week and also make your broth. I think I will make enough to freeze. Is that what you do? What type of container do you put your broth in to put in the freezer?

      I tried to reply from my iphone…didn't work…sorry. yes, I freeze excess broth. It's great to have on hand. You can just use plastic containers to freeze stock it. I have used bottles, but that's not a great idea. Good luck

    I love soups (in fact I've just blogged about soup too!) and this one looks so good. Nothing beats a nice hot soup on a winters day. Also, the chocolates arrived yesterday! Thank you so much, they are absolutely delicious and were very exciting to receive:) Kezia x

    This sounds wonderful! I love the texture that pearl barley gives to soups. I shall be making this over the weekend! Thank you for sharing your recipe!
