Vegetable Quinoa & Barley Soup

Vegetable Quinoa & Barley Soup


Soup is always a quick “Go To” meal for me.  My reason is that it takes a little over 30 minutes to prepare and it’s something warm as opposed to a salad or sandwich.  Also, you get to use a variety of vegetables all stewed in one pot. For this soup I have broccoli, carrots, green beans, corn, spinach, water chestnuts, green onions and more. To make the soup even more scrumptious and filling I added quinoa and barley. Gotta get in those healthy grains.



  • 1 quart vegetable or chicken stock
  • 2 cups  water
  • 3/4 cup quinoa
  • 1/2 cup barley
  • 2 -3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 bag of Deluxe stir fry (it’s more than for stir fry)
  • 1 cup Classic mixed vegetables
  • 1 – 2 cups of spinach
  • 1 spring of fresh Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Salt to taste
  • Red Pepper


In  a saucepan, add 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Add quinoa and cook for about 10 minutes.

Reduce to low heat.  Add remaining ingredients, cover with lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes.

Makes 6-8 servings
