This vegetarian barley soup is made from pearl barley, onions, parsley, thyme, potatoes, milk and butter. It contains no meat and suitable to vegetarians or those who abstain from eating meat. The recipe I have here does not contain carrots but if you like you can add it along with the potatoes.
- 8 oz. of pearl barley
- 2 onions
- 4 potatoes
- ½ teaspoonful of thyme
- 1 spoonful of finely chopped parsley
- 3½ pints of water
- ½ pint of milk
- 1 oz. of butter
- Pick and wash the barley, chop up the onions, slice the potatoes.
- Boil the whole gently for 4 hours with the water, adding the butter, thyme, pepper and salt to taste.
- When the barley is quite soft, add the milk and parsley, boil the soup up, and serve.
