The ideal way to start an italian meal, this soup is loaded with health and taste. Fibre-rich barley is a key ingredient in this soup while the use of vegetable stock and other veggies enhances its health profile. Red chilli flakes spice up the soup, but always add it at the end lest the soup becomes over spicy. Adding cheese to hot soup causes it to melt and mix in well with soup thereby pepping up the flavour – what more can i say, taste it and you’ll believe me!

What a great way of using barley! Its a fantastic soup, rich in fibre and packs a punch of flavour! Loved the idea of adding cheese in the end! Delicious!
