A tempting soup with plenty of rutabaga, carrot, cabbage and potatoes. And with small pieces of meat as “spice”.
If you use vegetable broth instead of beef broth in this soup, it will make first-rate vegetarian food. The combination of whole barley, vegetables and potatoes is perfect. Serve it with bread and you have a full meal.
If you want the soup thicker, more like a stew, you just add a little more barley and more potatoes and vegetables.
