7 Bean and Barley Soup (Crock Pot)

Here is a simple but hearty soup recipe – perfect for the crock pot!  I add chicken sausage to this soup, particularly a spicy Italian chicken sausage.


  • 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 4 large carrots, chopped
  • 2 cups dried bean and barley mix, rinsed and soaked overnight
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (low sodium preferred)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1.5 lbs chicken sausage
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Brown sausage in skillet
  2. Combine all ingredients in crock pot
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours

For an extra special taste, soak your bean mix during the day, do all the ingredients the night before and let it all sit in the refrigerator overnight before cooking!
