This is one of my favorite soups right now. It’s super cheap and filling to make, not to mention — extremely delicious.

I created it specifically for the Plant Based on a Budget Challenge and since it was a hit, I thought I’d make its own recipe page.

If you try to eat gluten-free, you can easily replace the barley with brown rice, just modify the recipe.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbs oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 12 cups veggie broth (I used 12 cups water, 4 bullion cubes)
  • 1 lb barley
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli
  • handful cilantro, chopped
  • red chili flakes, to taste (optional)

Method

Step 1

In a large pot, saute garlic and onions for a minute and then add celery and carrots. Add the rest of the ingredients and boil on medium-high until barley is fully cooked.
