Ingredients

Lamb Mince, raw

115 g, lean

Pearl barley, dry

30 g

Onion(s)

1 large, finely chopped

Carrots, raw

2 medium, finely chopped

Turnip

2 portion(s), medium, chopped

Leek

2 medium, thinly sliced

Salt

1 pinch

Black pepper

½ teaspoons

Parsley, fresh

4 tablespoons

Instructions

  1. Dry fry the mince in a large saucepan for 5 minutes, stirring frequently to separate and lightly brown it. Pour on 1.2 litres (2 pints) of cold water. Bring it to the boil and then use a large, shallow spoon to remove any scum that forms on the surface.
  2. Reduce the heat, add the pearl barley and prepared vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Cover and leave to simmer gently for 50-60 minutes.
  3. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Stir in the parsley, ladle into warm soup bowls and serve immediately.
