Easy Barley Vegetable Soup
After work or school, soup can make a tough day melt away into a hazy memory. Ditto when it’s freezing outside, the car wouldn’t start and the bus was late.
Soup can make it all better.
Now, here’s where the easy factor really shines! To make this vegetable and barley soup from scratch, simply add all your ingredients to your rice cooker and select the Slow Cook setting. That’s pretty much it! Press the Start key and move on to something else. There’s nothing better than eating a slow cooker soup without dragging the slow cooker out of storage!
