#traditionalirishsoup #vegetablesoup #atasteofhome

Hi guys, welcome to Marks Irish Kitchen where i do family friendly recipes everyone can enjoy. Todays video is for a traditional Irish vegetable soup or broth. This is a simple soup and more known as being from the North of Ireland. This soup has been made for generations as a hearty and healthy way to keep people fed. It is a cheap wholesome soup that is really simple to make. Its known in Ireland as a comfort food plus its a great way to top up your 5 a day.
Although i make mine with vegetable stock, it is traditionally made with either a “soup bone” which is a shin of beef or some chicken bones and meat off the carcass.

180g (3/4 cup) soup mix *(see below)
1 large carrot washed and sliced
1 large leek washed and sliced
3 stalks soup celery ( if you cant get soup celery use as dark a celery as you can) you will be using the leaves as well.
1-1.5 litres of stock depending on how thick you like your soup.
Handful flat leaf parsley

Spray a large saucepan with some low calorie oil and add the leeks,carrots and celery and cook for 3-4 minutes.
Then add the barley mixture (you can soak the barley mixture overnight before using to cut down on the simmering time).
Then add the stock and the parsley. Season to taste but go easy on the salt as the barley mixture is quite salty.
Simmer for 2.5-3 hours until the barley and peas mixture is softened and plumped up(this will be less approx 1 hour if the barley mixture has been soaked).

Soup mix
7 parts dried barley
1 part dried red lentil
1 part yellow split peas
1 part green split peas
.5 part marrowfat peas.
