Vegetable Barley Soup

vegetable barley soup

I’d like to share with you a delicious soup my daughter-in-law, Laya prepares. Friends who have made this recipe have witnessed their family members “licking the plate”! It freezes very well when you double or triple the recipe. This is a perfect recipe for a cold or “blizzard” day! It would also complement your Succos menu.
