This easy Barley Soup recipe, aka Graupensuppe, is a German staple. Easy to make and so tasty. It's great for those cool autumn days and especially warming on cold winter days. Why?This soup is a "stick-to-your-ribs" satisfying comfort food! This grain is high in fiber and protein. It has a chewy texture and nutty taste, similar to brown rice. Use this soup recipe to learn how to cook barley. It really is easy.
For the soup pictured above, I added about one pound of cubed raw chicken breast to the bacon. Then I cooked it together for about 5 minutes. After that, I continued with the recipe. I used chicken bouillon cubes and even added a bit of curry powder. This addition turned a normal barley recipe into something WUNDERBAR !
