Mummy’s Fast & Easy

As I have mentioned before, I love all grains and like including them in my recipes.
The other day, I was making a chicken soup but instead of adding potatoes and other veggies I added pearl barley.
So this is the recipe of the day – Pearl Barley Chicken Soup.
I also added some chopped tomatoes and I think the result was quite satisfying – tasty, nutritious and healthy soup to feed the family.:)

Here’s what you need.
