This soup is rich in protein, carbohydrates, and fiber ,its very filling i often have it for lunch or brunsh when its too cold :

2 quarts Chicken Stock
1 cu Bite-size cooked Chicken meat
Small Onion -- sliced in ring - 3 cloves of garlic
Rib Celery -- chopped
Sm Parsnip -- sliced thin
1 cup Pearl Barley
1 teaspoonDried basil
1/4 teaspoon Ground white Pepper
1 dash Salt (opt.)
1/4 cup Shredded carrot (opt)

Combine all ingredients except salt and carrot and simmer until the barley is cooked for around 20 - 30 minutes or till its cooked then ,add the carrots and salt ( we dont want to loose its nutrisious value bec carrots will b cooked in few min and if you added salt it will delay the cooking of barley )
it will mainly take about 45 minutes to cook ,depends on the barley size . Season to taste before you serve ,

u can add cream fresh or milk if you desire a lighter texture :)) .
