How to make Barley Minestrone Vegetable Soup

  1. 1. Wash and chop all the vegetables. Dry roast barley on low flame until they start to change color, remove from heat and add water to barley to soak it for about half an hour.
  2. 2. In a large wok, heat olive oil, add vegetable one at a time and saute for 1-2 minutes followed by the next veggie. I started with onions sauteed until they turned translucent, add tomatoes and saute till they turn soft.
  3. 3. Then follow by adding carrots, beans, zucchini, cabbage, mushrooms, peas, spinach.
  4. 4. Add salt and pepper powder and mix well. Finally add soaked barley and vegetable stock, simmer and cook until barley is done.
  5. 5. Serve it hot with some roasted garlic bread. And the beat way to eat it is by sitting next to a window watching the rain and sipping this soup hot.
My Tip: Serve it with mini garlic bread toasts like I did!
