Dr.Weil Barley & Vegetable Soup Recipe 


Barley has been cultivated since the Stone Age and was fermented to make beer soon after. Folk medicine prescribed the use of barley water as a tonic during convalescence. “Pearl” barley is the name of the grain when it’s been polished, after the husk and bran have been removed. It’s the form most commonly used in soups. Enjoy this healthful, old-fashioned, hearty soup!
