Vegetable Barley Soup

Vegetable barley soup

Even though this past weekend was abnormally warm (I’m talking 60 degrees in November…in Buffalo!), when the weather turns cold, nothing warms you up like a piping hot bowl of soup. Last week was frigid, and the wind made it feel even colder, so what better way to battle the temperatures than with a batch of vegetable barley soup! This soup is a perfect weeknight meal, since all you have to do is open up some cans and dice a few vegetables; add them both to a pot and let the heat do the rest! The next time the temperatures take a nose-dive, do yourself a favor and make a big pot of this soup. It easily serves 8, so if you are like us and only have 2 people in your household, this soup reheats perfectly for a week’s worth of lunch!

2 tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Onion, diced
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
8 cups Vegetable Stock
3/4 cup Barley, uncooked
2 Carrots, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups Baby Spinach
1 Zucchini, cut into half moons
1 24-ounce can Diced Tomatoes
2 Bay Leaves
Salt and Pepper, to taste

In a large stock pot, sauté the garlic and onion in the oil for 4-5 minutes, or until soft. Add the vegetable broth and remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cook until the barley is soft, about 30-40 minutes.
