Turkey Barley Soup
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
6 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup pearl barley
salt and pepper
3 cups spinach leaves, chopped
Heat oil over medium heat. Add turkey and cook until brown.
Add onion, celery and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes until softened.
Then add broth, barley and season with the salt, pepper, basil and garlic powder to your liking.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about an hour (until barley is tender).
Then add spinach, let it simmer for 5 minutes and serve :)
Before you view the picture, I will admit that due to the complaining of my 14 month old food loving daughter, I completely forgot to add the spinach this time around because I was rushing to get her fed. (I swear sometimes you would think that I don't feed her. She eats well, I swear!)
The picture would look better with the spinach. We missed out on our greens but oh well!
And here is a photo just to prove I do not starve my child!

Hope you like the soup!
