Hearty Kale Soup...

Fancy making some hearty kale soup. Perfect for serving in a mug on cold days.

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 40 minutes

Serves 4

You will need:
  • 75g pearl barley
  • 1.4 litre vegetable stock
  • 1 leek, thickly sliced (200g)
  • 1 carrot, diced (150g)
  • 2 sticks celery, sliced (100g)
  • 250g pack Kale
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley

  1. Cook the barley in the stock gently for 30 minutes in a large covered saucepan or until just tender. Add the vegetables, cover and cook for a further 5-8 minutes.
  2. Stir in the parsley and season to taste.

Cooks tip:
  • For a quicker cooked soup, replace the barley with basmati rice or macaroni.
