A comforting one-pot meal that is easy to put together. Packed with vegetables, beans and hearty pearl barley.
1) If the soup is too thick for your liking simply add more water or stock in the end and put it back on the stove just until it starts to simmer.
If you’ve added too much water or stock and want to thicken the soup, let it cook over low heat until some of the liquid cooks down and thickens.
2) Cranberry beans are more commonly known as borlotti beans in Europe.
Instead of using canned beans, you can cook beans at home. Personally, I would cook beans separately and not with the soup, because the beans will probably need more cooking time, even when soaked overnight.
