Scotch Vegetable Broth Recipe

This is a recipe for a hearty soup filled with the flavours of root vegetables and barley. It is especially good as a winter time soup or even for those needing a "good feed".

Scottish Vegetable Broth Soup

1 oz Butter
1 Medium Carrot (diced)
1 Large Onion
1 small white turnip
1 leek (chopped)
1 large celery stick (chopped)
1 & 1/2 pts vegetable or meat stock
2 level tablespoons barley (well washed)
salt and pepper
Chopped fresh parsley or chives

Melt the butter in the pan. Add all the vegetables. Cover with a lid and allow to sweat gently, ensuring the pan is shaken to coat the vegetables with butter. After about 5 minutes pour in stock. Then add the barley and bring to boil. Season as required, then reduce the heat and simmer for approx 1-1.5 hours until barley is completely soft.

Serve with hot rolls or bread and garnish the soup with the parsley or chives.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
