Book of Soups

We just love this insprational cookbook! At first it seems a little plain compared with glossy hardbacked cookbooks, but the quirky illustrations and the variety and quality of recipes has deemed it a treasure in our kitchen.

Soups in the slow cooker, with dumplings, vegan recipes, broths, chilled soups, dessert soups and big soups... I think every kind of soup is covered in these 49 pages!

A favourite one for our children to make themselves...

Vegetable Barley Soup
1-2 T of oil
2-3 sticks celery
1-2 medium onions
2 cloves garlic
about 2 quarts water
1 cup barley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1-2 tsp tamari
3-4 potatoes
3-4 carrots (winter squash is good too!)

In a large soup pot, saute onions, celery and garlic in oil. Add water, barley, salt, Italian seasoning, and tamari. Bring to a boil and continue to boil gently for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, peel potatoes and carrots. Add vegetables to soup and continue gentle boil for an hour or until barley is tender. Enjoy!
