Black Bean and Barley Soup

In Meals on December 30, 2012 at 4:10 am

So, I did not take a picture of this one. To be quite honest it was a spur of the moment, ran out of “real groceries” kind of meal. Thankfully, it was delicious and even our 8 month old enjoyed some!

You Need:

8 cups beef broth

1 cup pearl barley

2 (15 1/2 oz cans) black beans, rinsed and drained

A handful of baby carrots, sliced

1 onion, chopped

4 stalks celery, sliced

Pour the broth, barley, and black beans into a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, onion, and celery and bring to a second boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 45 minutes or until some of the broth is soaked up and the vegetables are tender.
