If you’re looking to lose weight, Veggie Cure also includes a 10-Day Weight Loss and Detox program to give you a jumpstart on your path to wellness.
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.
