    Chef #1109421's Note:

    From fatfreevegan.com, adapted from NewCenturyNutrition.com Based on a recipe by J. Raymond Thick enough to be called a stew, this hearty soup is easy to prepare and cooks in a single pot. Add more water or stock if you wish to have a thinner soup. Pearl barley is the variety most commonly sold in supermarkets. Natural food stores offer hulled barley, which is slightly less refined and cooks in about the same amount of time.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all ingredients except salt into a large pot and bring to a simmer.
    2. 2
      Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils and barley are tender, about 1 hour.
    3. 3
      Add salt to taste and spinach, if desired.
    4. 4
      Cook briefly until spinach is wilted but still bright green.
    5. 5
      This soup can also be prepared in a crockpot. If you start with boiling water it will cook in 1 to 2 hours; with cold water, 5 to 6 hours.
    6. 6
      To cook in a pressure cooker, put all ingredients except salt and spinach into cooker and bring it to high pressure.
    7. 7
      Cook at high pressure for 12 minutes; then bring pressure down with a quick-release method. Lentils should be cooked, but barley may not be completely tender.
    8. 8
      Cook until barley reaches the desired state of tenderness, about 15 minutes, adding water if a thinner consistency is needed. Then add salt and spinach, if desired.
    9. 9

      We tried this recipe last night and tweaked it to our tastes. Because we had tomato sauce leftover we added that, about 2 Cups. We also substituted Red Curry paste for the Cumin to give it more of a kick because we like things spicy. Definitely recommend using the veggie stock. We used Better than Bouillon and it has a great flavor. We chopped up fresh spinach at the end and poured the soup over it and mixed. Great recipe.
