Hamburger Barley Soup

Hamburger barley soup is so tasty and comforting you’ll want to make this for supper tonight. 🥘  I first tasted this soup twenty years ago at a friend’s house in my hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario.  This recipe has been tweaked over the years to make it more healthy without compromising the taste.  Besides the incredible flavor of this soup, the next best thing about this recipe is that it’s so easy.  All you need to do is fry up the hamburger, onions, and garlic, then dump in the rest of the veggies, stock, and spices.  Then, you can sit back and let the flavors meld together.
