Lentil-Barley Ham Soup
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 70 min.
I love this soup! Didn't have any lentils so I used all barley (not quick cooking). I used half chicken broth and half broth from my ham bone. I used stewed a 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes and about 8 cups of broth. Delicious!
I've made this several times, just as written, and is delicious every time! My whole family enjoys it!
Super flavour, I increased the amt of herbs & garlic. Sooooooo good!!!!!!
Love, Love, this soup. The only changes, olive oil for butter, canned lentils, and I also added mushrooms (about a cup & 1/2) when I was sauteing the vegetables. I also only used about half of the canned tomatoes.
Delish - our family loved the veggies and grain combination. The broth has just enough herbs for a great flavor (added 2 cups of ham broth to make it more soupy). I served this soup with Applesauce Walnut Muffins. Nice combination.
