Back to the Basics
But sometimes the basics are good. Like when there's a comforting soup ready and waiting for you when you get home. Darlene mostly followed the recipe in The Vegetarian Family Cookbook by Nava Atlas for this Lentil Barley Soup. We're really into barley in soups lately - it brings a nice added flavor and texture to the party. The rest was well, basic. Onions, carrots, celery, garlic, lentils, veg. boullion, water, and seasoned with bay leaves and salt & pepper. We had it with a little fresh parsley on top and some pumpernickel bread on the side and it really hit the spot.
