This is the one the most beautiful soup ever and one of my favorite too. It not only looks festive just in time for the holidays but warms the soul and satisfies the taste buds with its tangy and spicy flavors along with being wholesome with Barley. High in fiber and protein this Cranberry Barley Soup is seasoned with healing herbs and mild spices.
I used Pearled Barley for this soup because I love the chewy texture of barley and satisfies the tummy by controlling the false hunger pangs at odd hours. Barley is nutrient packed and helps in losing weight because it consists of essential amino acids and is very high in fiber. It is also helpful in stabilizing blood pressure and its phosphorous content helps in repairing or forming bones and body tissues. It also promotes good immunity and healthy skin with its vitamin C content.
Cranberries and Barley combined together with herbs, vegetable broth and some spices this Cranberry Barley Soup turned out to be so healthy and delicious and perfect for the cold weather. With snow outside, we all enjoyed this warm hearty soup while snuggling in our blanket and chatting with eat other. For Yashvi I reduced the spice added little sweetener and after eating this soup she was super energized and could not stop dancing all evening on her favorite numbers.
