Tomato & Barley Soup:
Sadly, today is the last day of Vegan MoFo. I'm still working on getting my 31 posts. Hopefully I'll have time to get the rest up tonight. (I've had a few set backs the past few days, and school is not helping).
On a related note, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Unfortunately I won't be trick or treating or going out tonight, but I will be busy vegging out after I'm done with my school work/work work and such.
1 can diced tomatoes + 2 cans water
1 1/2 cups kale, rinsed and ripped into small pieces
1/2 cup uncooked barley
1 yellow onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Lawry's Seasoned Salt (optional)
Dash of paprika
Dash of black pepper
1. Add the diced onions, oil, and garlic to a large pot. Cook on medium to medium high heat until softened, about 10 minutes.
2. Stir in the tomatoes, 2 cans of water, red wine vinegar, salt, seasoned salt, paprika, and black pepper. Bring to a boil.
3. Once the soup is boiling, reduce heat to medium, and continue cooking for another 12 minutes.
4. After 12 minutes, stir in the barley and kale. Continue cooking on medium heat for another 12 to 15 minutes.
