Barley and Vegetable Stew

This delicious bowl of homey goodness is full of fiber and does not lack in flavor! I used chicken broth but vegetable broth would be equally as good too. As you can see.. I use the same ingredients for just about all my recipes.

3 cans of chicken broth
2 celery sticks
2 carrots
3 tomatoes
1 onion
1 cup frozen veggies
1 cup of dried barley = 5 cups of cooked barley
olive oil
poultry seasoning
salt and pepper

I pureed my chopped tomatoes..
Some pictures are missing so here it goes:
Chop up celery, carrot and onion
Heat up pot, splash of olive oil, sweat your veggies!
Cover with lid for 3 minutes, stirring to prevent burning. Add in your dried barley and poultry seasoning (super fragrant). Stir and reduce heat.

Once the veggies and barley have been mixed, pour in your tomato puree.

skim off the foam!
Pour in chicken broth and 1 can of water. Cover and let simmer. Stir occasionally to check if barley has softened. Add in frozen veggies and turn heat up to cook thoroughly and serve hot.
