Split Pea and Barley SoupSplit_Pea_And_Barley_Soup_Nutrition Twins
The Nutrition Twins were kind enough to share with us this winter warming recipe. I hope you enjoy!

Serves 6 (about 1 cup per serving, if prepared thick)

8 cups water
1 cup dried split peas
½ cup pearled barley
3 cups chopped onion
1-½ cups chopped celery
2 cups chopped carrots
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup frozen mixed veggies (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup chopped fresh dill (optional)

Rinse split peas and pearled barley in a strainer.

Place all ingredients (except for the optional ingredients) in a 4-quart pot over medium heat and cook for 2½ to 3 hours, until the split peas are soft and very tender, or dissolved if you prefer. Stir occasionally as the soup thickens, to prevent it from scorching. You may need to add more water if it starts to get too thick for your taste. When soup is almost done, add frozen vegetables, salt, pepper, and dill to taste and allow veggies to cook for 5 to 10 minutes.

Note: If you like yours soupier and less stew-like, add more water as it cooks.

    I’m still learning how to eat more vegetables and prepare them different ways, but my go-to for new vegetables is usually just steaming them with a little cheese on top.
