Super Easy Sausage Barley Soup Recipe with pre-cooked sausage, frozen or fresh vegetables and barley.

I made this sausage barley soup knowing my kids will eat anything with sausage. In fact, they love soups, especially with a sprouted toast – I know my dinner will be peaceful. I used organic chicken sausage, just enough to add the flavour. Lots of barley to make it filling. I really adore barley – once cooked it adds creaminess and richness to the soup. And then I remembered I had this huge bag of frozen veggies from Costco. Voila, even easier and faster soup.

Enjoy this simple healthy sausage and barley soup since outside is kind of chilly. It also could become a sausage barley spinach soup.;)

  1. Made your soup today! The only changes I made was subbing most of the water for chicken broth. It was excellent and I will be making it again this winter–thanks for a great recipe!

    1. Hi Anna. You are very welcome. Yes, water or any type of broth can be used in pretty much all soup recipes. I list what I have on hand when making the recipe. Often I don’t have broth on hand so I use water. Any liquid works. Even leftover gravy from previously cooked meat dish watered down.
