this soup is so easy and so good!  AND it is healthy – it has an A rating on!

thanks to jaymee for the bread.  the extra chickpeas not used in the soup were great on the salad with some tomatoes and cheese (feta for joe, bleu for me).


  • 3 C chicken broth
  • 1 C chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 C barley
  • 1 C carrot juice
  • 2 C chopped carrots (or a little more)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 T parsley (to garnish)
  • 2 T parmesan (to garnish)


  1. bring broth to a boil in large saucepan.
  2. add carrot juice, barley, and chickpeas and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. add carrots and return to simmer for 10 minutes
  4. use immersion blender to chop carrots to desired chunkiness (i like about 2 minutes).
  5. dish up soup and garnish with parm and parsley.
