Slow Cooker Vegetable and Barley Soup is a great way to warm up as the weather gets cooler and a very easy way to get a few servings of healthy vegetables. Of course, you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this fabulous soup!

  1. Place all ingredients EXCEPT tomatoes in a 6 quart slow cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  3. Stir soup and add tomatoes.
  4. Cover the crock pot and cook for about 15 minutes longer or until tomatoes are hot.

 

Happy Crocking!
