"The green is parsley.

Who uses a scale to make soup? Good grief, if you dont like the recipe, move on already."

"I took out the carrots and added peas and corn and it was really good. The entire family enjoyed. I would probably add more barley next time."

" The green you see are green onions..Alot of recipes dont add it as an ingredient because it is usually used as a garnish. "
