Barley Soup (easy delicious recipe with almond milk)

Hi guys

I believe the best option for dinner during winter, is warm, delicious, healthy soup. Today’s recipe is simple yet full of nutrients.

Ingredients :

1- 1/2 cup organic barley

2- 2 tbs rolled oats (optional)

3- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other vegan milk)

4- 3 small carrots

5- a clove of garlic

6- 1/2 lemon

7- Salt & pepper

8- 1/2 ts saffronFullSizeRender 5

First throw 1/2 cup of barley in a dip pot. Then add salt and 1.5 liter water.


Put the pot on high heat until it starts boiling. Turn the heat down and put on the lead. cooking time depends on what kind of barley you are using. Since I’m using organic barley it takes 50 minutes. If you don’t know how long to wait, check the barley time to time, when it looks like the barleys in the picture, you can take next step.
