If you’ve ever bought a box of Quaker Quick Pearled Barley, you may have seen the recipe for Quick ‘N Hearty Vegetable Barley Soup on the back of the box. My MIL was the first to introduce me to it, and since then we’ve made it more times than I can count. I’m sharing my modified recipe below for a higher protein, veggie packed, garlic powered version. What can I say… We love garlic! If you decide to mix it up, chicken makes a GREAT substitute as noted.
