Homemade lentil soup with barley & spinach, topped with a squeeze of lemon at end of cooking for a nice clean, citrus taste.

Recipe Ingredients for Kathy's Lentil Barley Spinach Soup

2 1/2 cups lentils
1 cup barley
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 quarts water
10 ounce frozen chopped spinach
2 teaspoons kosher salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Kathy's Lentil Barley Spinach Soup

Sweat onions in olive oil. Garlic & diced carrots could be added now, if desired. Sprinkle salt over onions to help release moisture. Add lentils and barley, add water (may need to 1 quart now, another quart later; add more water later if needed). Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and let cook for a few hours, checking frequently for water level. Barley will burn if there is not enough water in pot! When soup is of desired consistency (I like my barley to break down some to provide it's thickening power), add frozen spinach (thawed or not), return to boil. Remove soup for burner to cool. Add lemon juice. Freeze in appropriate (for you) sized containers. Makes a lot!
