There is nothing like a bowl of hot vegetable soup to fill you with good, healthy nutrients.

A recipe that is very easy to make and super tasty.

I call it “feel good soup”,

because of its ability to boost your immune system when you feel low. and because of the balanced ingredients, it is considered to be a whole meal.

To this soup, I add Pearl barley-

It contains a type of soluble fibre called Beta glucan (which is also found in oats), that helps reduce raised blood cholesterol levels and stabilises blood sugar levels.

You will need:

  • 1 onion
  • 6 mushrooms
  • carrot
  • turmeric root
  • pinch of salt, pepper
  • 2 potatoes
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 50 gr pearl barley
  • 1 cup frozen peas (130 gr)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1.5-litres stock/ water
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

What to do?

  1. first cut and cook the onion, carrot, mushrooms and turmeric root with a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt & pepper.
  2. After the vegetables have softened and developed some fragrance and flavour, add the potatoes and 1 medium sweet potato.
  3. add about 1.5 litres of stock/water, then cover, and simmer.
  4. Simmer for about 40 minutes then add the peas and spinach and cook for 10-15 more minutes.
  5. bonne appetite!
