Vegan Pearl Barley Soup like from Grandma

For so many years pearl barley soup was my favorite dish until I discovered baked tofu. So now it is on second place, but I still love it very much.

For a classic pearl barley soup a beef bone with flesh is cooked for hours and then pearl barley and veggies are added to the broth. I like it the easy way (as usual): All ingredients in a pot, cook it and done. Some people cook the barley separately and rinse it, to avoid the soup from getting slimy. Well, I love it slimy…

Back when I ate meat, I used to add canned beef to the soup. Comparing texture and taste I like Wheaty seitan medallions best as a substitute instead of smoked tofu or other meat-like products.

Enjoy!

Love,

    Oh lecker, das sieht richtig toll aus. Wie eine deftige Suppe, die man an kalten Wintertagen eben braucht – lecker!
    Graupensuppe habe ich ehrlich gesagt noch nie gegessen, sieht aber toll aus 🙂
