Looking for something super healthy and low calorie that's still hearty and filling?
This is the perfect soup for a cold, wintery night! The hubby and the very-leery-at-first kids all gobbled it down and had seconds. :)
Pork and Barley Soup
1 sweet onion
3 Tbls olive oil
1 quart chicken broth (I saved the juice from a chicken I had made earlier)
1 quart water
5 celery stalks (sliced)
3/4 cup dry pearled barley
1 cup cooked pulled/shredded pork
optional spices to taste: salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, sage, basil, parsley, celery seed
In soup pot, saute finely chopped onion in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for two hours. Bon Apetit!
Note: This is a Kammy original which means all measurements are approximate and you can add or take away depending on your taste!
GLUTEN FREE OPTION:
Substitute barley for small dried navy beans or rice.
