Default White bean and Barley Soup!

1.5c Great Northern Beans(soaked over night)
1/2c barley
10-15 baby carrots chopped
2 ribs celery chopped
10 button mushrooms chopped in half and thinly sliced
2 veggie boullion cubes
thyme
1 bay leaf
2 cloves garlic
onion powder(or regular onion, dh hates the texture so I have to use powder)

This soup turned out so good! I cooked the beans first in the crockpot covered with water about 2'' above them... after about 4 hours I added the veggies and herbs. Then about an hour before it was finished I added boullion cubes and barley(I used the quick cook pearled barley).

dh likes corn in this so sometimes we put it in and sometimes we don't

This looks wonderful! I've been looking for a white bean soup recipe. Thanks for the exact directions on timings -- I have canned beans now, but I'll try it with dried ones some day

rdw1, I made this tonight and it's lovely!! I love barley, but I always forget to cook with it!

I made a couple quick adjustments, and they turned out well. I used chicken stock in place of the vegetable boullion, sauteed the mirepoix in a teaspoon of butter with a little bit of olive oil before adding the stock and used no onion powder. Otherwise, I left it alone -- it was delightful! Thanks muchly!

Rae

Loved this recipe! The barley really adds a nice texture to the soup. Yum. I used zucchini, a couple of carrots, diced tomatoes with basil & green pepper
