This first soup I am sharing is a simple soup bursting with great color,texture, and flavors that just shout home cooked! I love the hearty texture and earthy flavors joined with fresh veggies,barley,potatoes and lots of chicken! Hats off to one souper recipe! I pair this soup alongside warm,soft Italian Herb bread!
