This soup is very satisfying and keeps well. Cooking it for a long time ensures that the barley gets creamy and thickens the soup. I have not tried this in a crock pot but it should work.

* Lentils, 1 cup
* Spinach, frozen, 16 oz package
* Onions, raw, 1 cup, chopped
* Olive Oil, 1 tbsp
* Barley, pearled, raw, 0.5 cup
* Chickpeas, 10.5 z can
* Chicken Broth, 4 cups
Additional sauteed onions and garlic
Juice of one lime


Saute onions in oil until caramelized. Add all other ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 2-3 hours. Add water as needed. When done add lime juice. Serve with additional caramelized onions and garlic.

Number of Servings: 6 (main dish serving)
