Soup – Tomato Barley with Cajun Seasoning


6 cups Water
1 lb. Barley, whole grain (not pearled)
3 lbs. Tomatoes, fresh or canned, chopped
1 Onion, large, chopped
4-5 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1-2 Tbsp. Cajun Seasoning, blended

To a crock-pot (slow cooker) on “high” setting, add 6 cups of boiling Water. (We heat the water in a microwave oven, 2 cups at a time, and add it to the crock- pot.)

Check Barley carefully, discarding any extraneous matter. Rinse and add Barley to crock-pot. Cover.

When Barley has swollen and is beginning to soften, add washed, peeled, chopped Onion and cleaned, crushed Garlic cloves. (To save time, a microwave oven may be used to heat Onion and Garlic pieces, with Tomato pieces, until Onion becomes nearly translucent, before adding to crock-pot.)

If using fresh Tomatoes, wash and chop them. Add to crock-pot. (See time saving suggestion in previous paragraph.) If using canned whole, peeled Tomatoes, cut into pieces before adding to crock-pot. Try adding one tablespoon blended Cajun Seasoning. Stir, cover, and continue to heat on “high” setting.

Taste and add another tablespoon Cajun Seasoning, if desired.

When Barley and Onions are soft, the soup is ready. Goes great with a large tossed salad.


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-30)
