I made up a pot of this soup tonight for dinner 4/23/13 and it was delicious. My husband Anthony, my Mom & I all enjoyed the unique flavor of having sweet potato added into this veggie soup. I've always loved barley added into a recipe because of it's nutty flavor and chewy texture. This recipe is from my Ninja Cookbook.

    1/17/2022 - I made a big pot of this soup on what was considered the biggest snow day we have had in Ohio since 1993. It took us hours to clean off 3 cars in the front, plow drives ways and sidewalks. We ended up with almost 14 inches. It was a beautiful snow day that we will all remember for years to come.
