Thick Winter Veggie Soup

This is my go-to recipe for a hearty, warming lunch or dinner. A thick veggie soup with barley.
I’ve changed it up recently, and I’m loving the adjustment of adding tomatoes, it just gives it a lovely tang.

You will need:

One large onion chopped fine

Two stalks of celery sliced

Two carrots, peeled and cubed

Tinned peeled, chopped tomatoes

650ml chicken stock

Salt and Pepper

1 X cup of barley or soup mix – cook separately alongside soup till starts to soften.


Fry onions in oil till soft. Add celery and carrots and fry for a further 2 minutes.

Add tomatoes and let simmer for 2 minutes

Add chicken stock, salt and pepper to taste.

Add barley/soup mix to the soup and reduce to a low heat and leave to simmer till all the veggies and barley are soft.
