Bison and Barley Soup

We enjoy this as a late lunch or an early dinner. The velvety feel of the barley adds a lushness to the texture of this soup without the added calories of butter & cream.

  • ½ medium yellow onion, diced ¼ inch
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced thinly

Cooking Instructions:

1. In large skillet sauté ground bison until cooked throughout.

4. Add water and bring to a boil.  Reduce to simmer and cook for 45 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
