Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You also can use leftover cooked turkey or chicken in this soup. Just add the turkey with the frozen vegetables.
  • tip 2
    Using quick-cooking barley really saves time, taking 10 to 12 minutes to cook, versus 45 to 50 minutes for regular barley.
  • tip 3
    One cup of cooked barley provides the same amount of protein as an 8-ounce glass of milk.
