  • 1 kg root vegetables I used sweet potato, carrot, parsnip, turnip and celeriac
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 1.5 litre bouillon/stock
  • 150 g pearl barley rinsed until the water runs clear
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch of Maldon Sea Salt


  • Put all the vegetables in a pot with 3 cm of water and cook until soft – about 5-7 minutes. Add more water if necessary.
  • Add the stock and barley to the pot and stir. Bring to the boil then turn down and simmer for 30-35 minutes – until the root vegetables are cooked.
  • Taste, then if needed, add the freshly ground black pepper and add a pinch of Maldon sea salt.
  • Serve with brown bread and a salad.
