Barley Soup

1 qt. chicken stock
1 c. bite-size cooked chicken
1 sm. onion, sliced into rings
1 rib celery, chopped
1 sm. parsnip, sliced thin
1 c. pearl barley
1 sm. strip Kombu*

1 tsp. dried basil
1/4 sp. ground white pepper
1 dash salt (optional)
1/4 c. shredded carrot (optional)

Combine all ingredients except salt and carrot and simmer until the barley is cooked, about 45 minutes (several hours in a Crockery Pot). Season to taste. This soup is rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fiber.

*Kombu is available in health stores. It makes beans and peas more digestible.
