  • Step 2

    Add four cups of the vegetable broth and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 20 minutes until the barley is tender.

  • Step 3

    Add all your frozen vegetables, salt, and pepper. Pour in the remaining broth. Bring to a simmer again and taste and add more seasonings as needed. If you prefer a less brothy soup, add more frozen vegetables.
