Where I live Fall is in the air, and I had the urge to make soup today, soup sooths the soul and nourishes the body and boosting one’s resolve to face the chill of the day.
1 can (1-pound) tomatoes, chopped, with the juice
8 cups water
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 stalk celery with leaves, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 cup whole barley
1/2 cup small dried lima beans
1/2 cup carrot, sliced
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 small russet potatoe diced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoon snipped fresh dill
1. In a large saucepan combine the tomatoes, juice, water, onion, celery, parsley, green pepper, barley, and lima beans. Bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, 1 1/2 hours.
2. Add the carrot, mushrooms, salt, and dill. Continue simmering until the carrot is tender, about 20 minutes.
Correct the seasonings and sprinkle on additional dill, if desired.
I am about to make this soup. Hope it comes out as good as yours. I read what Shelley’s family thought of the shortribs. The ribs are delicious tell Shelley instead of changing the meat she should just change her family!
Laughing at you,
waiting for Shelley to see this post. lol
