1 large Turnip, peeled and diced
1 large Parsnip, peeled and diced
2 Carrots, peeled and diced
2 Leeks, washed and sliced
¼ medium Cabbage, washed and sliced
1 Onion, chopped
2 Tbs Tomato paste
1/3 C Pearl barley, soaked in water overnight and drained
1 teaspoon fresh Thyme (or ½ tsp dried thyme)
5 C Vegetable stock
Pepper to taste


Put all the ingredients except the pepper into a large saucepan using enough stock so that the vegetables and barley are just covered. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer over a low heat for about 1 hour (or until the barley is tender). Serve with your favourite bread rolls for a warming winter lunch.
