Lentil Vegetable Barley Soup

When everyone in the family eats all of their dinner, I know we have a winner!

  • 1/2 large onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 medium summer squash (or zucchini), halved lengthwise and sliced thinly
  • 1 bunch carrots, sliced
  • 1/2 C red lentils
  • 1/2 C yellow split peas
  • 1/2 C barley
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 4 C vegetable broth
  • 1/2 t salt
  • added water, as needed 

  1. Layer ingredients in a slow cooker, in order as listed above. 
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours or on high for 4.
  3. Add water as needed (I ended up using a bag of frozen onions and bell peppers and didn't need to add any water).
