3 diced carrots 3 diced potatoes 2 stalks celery 1 medium onion, diced 2 cup chopped cabbage 2 cup green beans 4 cups diced tomatoes (or 1 quart canned) 1/2 cup hulled barley 2 Tbs dried parsley 1 tsp dried basil Salt and pepper to taste
Cover all with water.
Sometimes we add some corn or peas too - veggie amounts can be adjusted to what you have. If I have Barth's Nutra- Soup vegetable broth powder or Sue's Kitchen Magic or Bernard Jensen's (broth seasoning, whatever it's called) I add a little of that 1-2 Tbs, but if this is simmered all day it makes its own great broth.
We simmer this in the crock pot all day. It fills a large one -- we have a large family. Then we serve with homemade whole wheat bread and a raw veggie tray. It never fails to bring raves from family or non-vegetarians.
