Tomato Barley Soup

IMG_4230-web

A New Year is here–always a great time to add some lighter dishes to the kitchen menu. Enter Tomato Barley Soup–no added fat, no added salt–a fresh, healthy bowl that still satisfies on frosty winter days. A warming little jewel from the 2014 Recipe Collection.

Tomato soup=comfort. This play on classic tomato rice soup adds in the healthy grain barley and avoids adding any fats or salt, yet still results in a bright, warm bowl of comfort. So simple–just combine the ingredients in a stockpot and in about an hour, soup’s on. For extra convenience, I used fire-roasted canned tomatoes from the pantry, adding a little extra flavor punch to the soup.

For tasty additions, top with fresh basil plus a sprinkle of grated Romano cheese, if you so desire. This is a great soup to freeze in individual servings, assuring there is always a warming bowl of soup just a few minutes away.

Welcome 2014 with a bowl of Tomato Barley Soup–fresh from the Bijouxs kitchen.
