Kale + barley soup

November 3, 2009


While this soup did not bring that stolen hour of daylight back, it did make me feel a touch better.  Here, you try:

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of barley
  • 1 bunch of kale
  • ~7-8 cups of water
  • salt, pepper, parsley, tarragon, thyme to taste
  1. Saute the onion, garlic, carrot, and seasonings.  Add barley and swirl it around distractedly  for a minute or so.
  2. Add water; bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for ~25 minutes.
  4. Toss in the coarsely chopped kale.  Simmer for another ~20 minutes, until it’s all soft and lovely.
