For simple nutritious soup for chilly and rainy days like today are just what I need.
2 boneless/skinless chicken thighs cubed
1 bag of spinach
4 c of chicken stock
2 medium potatoes cubed
1 medium onion cubed
1/2 c barley
1/2 c dried split pea
1/4 tsp black pepper
*Check for salt and add if you need.
Add spinach leaves into a blender with a cup of water to liquefy.
Meanwhile in a large pot add barley, split pea and chicken stock. Let simmer for about 20 minutes. Then add potatoes, the liquified spinach onions and cubed chicken till potatoes are fork tender. May add additional water if needed.
Plate and serve.
