Buckeye Bean and Herbs Beefed Up Barley Soup is an easy-to-make soup that is both nutritious and heartwarming. Add flair by adding additional vegetables and meats for a more complex flavor, or enjoy a meatless vegetarian and vegan meal.
More than tasty, this soup mix provides exceptional nutritional value. The lentils and whole grains used in this soup are excellent sources of protein, B vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Barley is a wholesome grain, adding a delightful nutty flavor, pleasantly chewy texture, and hearty nutrition to this mix. Like all plant foods, barley is naturally cholesterol-free and low in fat.
Living up to its name, Buckeye Beans and Herbs includes a seasoning packet filled with premium herbs for robust flavor. This hearty soup is perfect for family gatherings and severs as an appetizing alternative to chili or stew.
I have been making this soup for years and just reordered more because I didn't realize I was out. I make this with canned diced unsalted tomatoes and with chopped cabbage and sliced zucchini. The spice packet provides a lovely rich flavor that isn't too spicy. It freezes really well and makes a very satisfying meal.
Wonderful to eat in cold weather, esp w Pop Overs/
Substitute the beef with vegan crumbles and the taste is amazing and healthier.
Super easy to make and delicious!!! I'm definitely a fan
