This Humble and Hearty Vegetable Soup is the very first recipe I tested for the Urban Vegan's new cookbook. I'd only eaten barley soup from a can before. I was very pleasantly surprised by the nice bite that the barley retained in this homemade soup. Great texture.
We loved the flavor of this soup and it made the house smell fantastic. Tony and I both went back for seconds, and Jackson could not get enough of it. Barley, chickpeas and potatoes make it super hearty and perfect for a cold almost-winter evening.
