I start by boiling dry soup mix that contains barley, rice, lentils, split peas and beans in 12 cups of water with a soup bone for 1 hour or so. Then I add cubbed carrots and turnips. Simmer for another 30 minutes. Then I add 1 cubed potato, leaks, rapini, and some Orzo pasta. Simmer for another 30 minutes,,, You can add 1 small can of V8 for taste. VOILA!

I absolutely love soups. This is the perfect time of the year for it. I have made pea soup, lima bean soup, minestroni, chili, pumpkin soups. I was vegetarian for 2.5 years so most of my protein was coming from beans. I love to cook and follow your posts regularly. I hope to publish a cookbook soon.
