This recipe is from the side of the Quaker QUICK Barley Box. It's my go-to recipe for Beefy Barley Veggie Soup!


1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onions
1 clove garlic, minced
5 c. water
1 (14 1/2 oz.) unsalted, canned whole tomatoes, undrained, cut into pieces
3/4 c. Quaker Quick barley
1/2 c. sliced celery
1/2 c. sliced carrots
2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 tsp. crushed basil
1 bay leaf
1 (8 oz.) pkg. frozen vegetables (any combination)

In 4 quart pan, brown meat, add onions and garlic. Cook until onions are tender. Drain and stir in remaining ingredients. Cover and bring to boil and reduce heat. Simmer 10 minutes, then add frozen vegetables. Simmer 10 minutes more or until tender. Extra water and bouillon cube may be added if soup is too thick. Makes 8 one cup servings.
