Slow Cooker Vegan Barley Stew

Slow Cooker Vegan Barley Stew


When the weather gets cool, I turn to comfort food. When I was growing up, I remember having Beef with Barley out of a can on rainy days. These days I prefer to make things from scratch.

The simple recipe calls for basic ingredients that I typically keep on hand. It only takes a couple minutes of prep time and the the crock pot does all the work.

This beautiful dinnerware is the new Boutique Brushed pattern from Corelle. It’s available in 6 different colors that can be mixed and matched. Like the 1970′s Corelle plates that I have, the dinnerware is lightweight, durable and chip resistant. It’s microwave and dishwasher safe. I expect these new plates, bowls and mugs to last a long, long time!

    I make Beef Barley soup,, and my oldest daughter won’t eat it because she’s vegetarian. Now I know we can make vegan barley soup, and I bet she’d love this — it looks amazing! Vegetable broth can be used in so many different ways! I can’t wait to try this!

    Thanks for the recipe. I have some quick-cooking barley on hand, so I think I could still make this recipe if I add it part-way through the cooking time.

    This recipe looks good. I love to cook vegan, and a nice warm soup will be great with the weather getting chilly.

    So funny, I just made almost this exact same thing, but with beef this week! Good overall, but the barley was somewhat mushy.

    October 15, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    I have some vegan friends. this would be a great recipe to cook and have them over

    This looks more like a bowl of barley and carrots. Where’s the broth?
