When the weather’s cold, a big pot of soup simmering on the stove warms the heart as well as the hearth. Adding some whole grain barley to the pot will improve your health along with the flavor of whatever you’re cooking. In addition to its nutty flavor, barley’s claim to nutritional fame is based on its being a very good source of dietary fiber, calcium, and a good source of copper, vitamin B1, etc.
Barley Vegetables Soup is a simple, yummy alternative to store bought packet soups. The nutrition value is very high as barley itself is very rich in fiber and we use all fresh ingredients in the soup. Barley is a wonderfully versatile cereal grain with a rich nutlike flavor and an appealing chewy, pasta-like consistency. But itâ€™s forgotten in the world of grains
There are numerous health benefits like:
â€¢ It lowers cholesterol due to its high fiber content.
â€¢ It assists digestive health and aids in weight loss.
â€¢ The fiber in barley promotes healthy blood sugar levels.
â€¢ Barley Substantially Lower Risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
â€¢ It reduces the risk of Cardio vascular diseases.
The barley that I have used is from Go India Organic. It has a very sweet taste and not at all chewy unlike many other locally available brands. If you cook it with your regular rice the taste is hardly distinguishable. You can also make a powder and mix it with your atta to make nutritious rotis.
