    Lentil & Barley Soup

    Lentil & Barley Soup



    A friend of mine sent me this one... Sounds perfect for the cold snap headed our way this week!

    Serve it with little bowls of crumbled goat feta cheese and olives on the side.

    Ingredients:

    2 tablespoons butter

    2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 cup chopped onion (about 1/2 onion)

    1/2 cup chopped celery (about 2 stalks)

    2 1/2 cups peeled chopped fresh or canned tomatoes

    2 cups water

    1/2 cup lentils

    1/3 cup pearled barley

    Salt and black pepper to taste

    1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary

    1/2 cup shredded carrots


    1. In a large heavy saucepan heated over medium-high heat, add the
    butter and olive oil and sauté onion until tender, 3 to 5 minutes,
    stirring occasionally. Add celery and cook until softened, 5 minutes
    longer.


    2. Add the tomatoes, water, lentils, barley, one-half teaspoon salt,
    one-fourth teaspoon pepper and the rosemary. Bring to a boil, cover and
    simmer over low heat 25 minutes stirring occasionally, until the barley
    and lentils are almost tender.


    3. Add carrots and cook five minutes longer, or until the barley and lentils are tender.

    I dunno what's wrong with me... tonight I have Buffalo Jerky going in the oven, a big ol' batch of Beef & Barley in the crock, and just whipped up some collard greens for a snack. ?

    Barley is like rice, only more substantial. It has a heartier flavor that it adds to soups, and it chews more solidly after being simmered for even HOURS!

    Perhaps I am preparing to hibernate? We have a cold front headed to us, and it is supposed to drop to almost freezing for a couple nights!!!
