Recipe type: Soup
Makes: about 12 cups (3 L)
Ingredients
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) canola oil
  • 1½ lb (700 g) ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cups (1 L) water
  • 2 cups (500 mL) low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 can (10 oz/284 mL) low-sodium condensed tomato soup or 1 can (5½ oz/156 mL) tomato paste
  • 1 can (28 oz/796 mL) diced tomatoes, undrained or 3 fresh, ripe tomatoes, diced (save as much of the juice as possible)
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • ½ cup (125 mL) pearl barley
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried parsley or 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh, chopped
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) dried thyme or 1½ tsp (7 mL) fresh, chopped

Instructions
  1. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Brown ground beef, garlic and onions over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes. Drain off any excess fat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring the soup to a boil before lowering heat. Simmer until barley has fully expanded, about an hour (if you are impatient the soup should be edible within 25-30 minutes.)
