Vegetable Barley Soup

I’d like to share with you a delicious soup my daughter-in-law, Laya prepares. Friends who have made this recipe have witnessed their family members “licking the plate”! It freezes very well when you double or triple the recipe. This is a perfect recipe for a cold or “blizzard” day! It would also complement your Succos menu.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, cut up
  • 3 carrots, cut up
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 medium raw potato, diced
  • 1 16 oz. can pureed peas & carrots
  • 1 tablespoon chicken soup mix
  • 1/2 cup barley


In a large pot, saute onion, celery, carrots in a TBS. of vegetable oil. Add potatoes; mix until soft. Add pureed peas & carrots. Add chicken soup mix with 6 cups of water. Mix well; add barley. Bring to a boil, then lower flame and cook for approximately 2 hours or until barley is soft.
Serve hot with chow mein noodles or matzoh balls! Check out my delicious Club Matzoh Ball recipe in my book. Freeze them as directed, and you will always have matzoh balls for your soup when you want them.

    where can you find pureed peas and carrots?

    • Buy canned or frozen peas & carrots. Puree in blender or with immersion blender.

      Good question as I thought the same thing. Maybe we can buy a can of peas and carrots and puree it, or buy pureed baby food.

    Want to make this for Shabbos. Where can u find purred peas & carrots?

    • Use cans of peas & carrots…puree with an immersion hand blender!It’s quick and easy! I ALWAYS double the recipe as my family inhales it! I want to freeze some for later use!

  4. A great way to vary the barley-mushroom default versions. Do you have any ideas for a veggie version that would not use commercial broth?

    If dried mushrooms are added, the flavour is even more sensational!

  6. how many servings does this recipe make?

  7. I ALWAYS double the recipe…so I have at least 12 servings. my family literally inhales it!
