I am sorry that I have not been posting much lately. I have been under the weather off and on, and frankly I have been feeling a little burned out. I've given myself time to get better and I am feeling like I am back on track. This recipe is a tomato based bean and barley soup with a healthy does of spice.
1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 of a large onion, diced
5 cups tomato juice
1/2 cup uncooked pearl barley, rinsed
2-15 ounce cans Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
2 teaspoons creole or Cajun seasoning
large stock pot
Warm the oil over medium heat and add the onion. Saute until the onion is tender, but still has a bite to it.
Add the tomato soup
Add the pearl barley
Add the beans
Add the seasoning
Heat to a boiling; reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
Serve warm. Serve with shredded cheese or sour cream
