🌱 Vegan Lentil Barley Soup 🌱
Today we’re going to make a vegan lentil barley soup and I I hesitate to call it vegan soup or vegetarian soup because this broth is so incredibly filled with umami and it ticks all of the boxes that you need for a flavourful rich soup even though it’s meatless.
15 mL (1 Tbsp) oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1″ ginger root, minced or grated
2 mL (½ tsp) ground turmeric
2 mL (½ tsp) ground cumin
2 mL (½ tsp) ground coriander
1125 mL (4½ cups) vegetable broth (https://youtu.be/Ox1w_PyKJ6w)
175 mL (¾ cup) dry red lentils, rinsed
125 mL (½ cup) pearl or pot barley, rinsed
Salt & pepper to taste

Sauté the onion until translucent, then stir in the garlic, and ginger.
Cook until softened and fragrant.Stir in the turmeric, cumin, and coriander; cook just until the spices are fragrant.Stir in the vegetable broth, lentils, and barley.
Bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer.
Cook partially covered for about 20 – 30 minutes, until the lentils and barley are cooked through.Season to taste with salt and pepper.
