Bean and Barley Soup

Bean and Barley Soup

2 tsp olive oil

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

5 cups vegetarian beef broth

1/4 cup + 1/8 cup pearl barley

2 bay leaves

2 medium carrots, peeled and diced

1 medium potato, diced

1/2 a 19oz can red kidney beans

Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, cook until soft. Add beef broth, barley and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer for 40 minutes (or until barley is almost cooked). Add rest of ingredients and cook until vegetables are tender. Remove bay leaves and add salt and pepper to taste.

(Celery would be good to add to the soup too, I just didn’t have any.)
