This is a nice soup recipe with a lot of texture and flavor. It is a welcome change for those weeks when there doesn’t seem to be a lot of variety… and all 3 of my kids even loved it. This can also be cooked in a pan on the stove until the barley and carrot are tender, but I prefer the slow cooker method. The flavors seem to blend better.

A creamy potato and white bean soup, with turmeric, cayenne pepper, curry powder and soy sauce. Instant potato flakes are added at the end of cooking, along with whole milk and half and half, for very thick and hearty soup.
