ABOUT Barley Minestrone Vegetable Soup RECIPE

With loads of veggies and barley, this minestrone vegetable soup is one of the most comforting and healthy soup. I used carrots, beans, green zucchini, yellow zucchini, cabbage, mushrooms, spinach, peas, onions, tomatoes, and barley. Saute all ingredients in olive oil and barley cooked in vegetable broth makes it a light comforting hearty soup.
