Yum that looks like a keeper!! I love soups in the winter, I make at least one pot per week...

Yesterday I made this wonderful soup :

I was missing a few ingredients the ones that are bolded I did NOT use or have and it was still delicious!!


Southwestern Veggie, Black Bean and Barley Soup


•2 T EVOO
•1 t cumin seeds
•1 t coriander
•2 T chili powder
•pinch oregano
•1 large onion, diced
•1 habanero pepper
•8 cloves garlic -- I hate garlic!
•1 t Tony’s Creole seasoning ( I used a TexMex seasoning )
•1 medium sweet potato, medium chop
•½ c dry barley
•1 c cooked black beans
•4 c water I used chicken stock that I already had I know not vegan but what the heck...
•14 oz canned tomatoes
•2 c corn -- I had no corn :( unfortunately, I would definitely have added frozen corn because I love it
•3 c cabbage or green of choice -- I used shredded coleslaw in a bag
• juice of 2 limes
•1 c cilantro -- I don't like cilantro so I used fresh parsley
•2 T nutritional yeast -- I bought some of this, not sure what it does, does not look or smell like much
•Salt/Pepper to taste

Method:

1.Sautι veggies and spices over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add water if needed to keep veggie from sticking
2.Add the sweet potato, barley, beans and water. Bring to a boil
3.Turn heat down to medium, cover and simmer for an hour or until barley is cooked
4.Stir in tomatoes, greens vinegar, cilantro and nutritional yeast
5.Taste and adjust seasoning
