Pork And Barley Soup {With Gluten Free Option}

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!  

Substitute barley for small dried navy beans or rice.
