Chicken and Barley Soup

Well with winter rapidly sneaking up on us and cold early mornings for weekend sports my plan is to have a soup ready to warm us up as soon as we get home.  This one was a ripper.  It is basic ingredients, really nothing fancy and quick to prepare.  Eating this transports me back to my Nan Nan's house growing up, just good wholesome food that can't be beat.  I made this on Friday night and to reheat I put back into the Thermomix bowl and warmed at 80deg for 10 minutes at Reverse Soft Speed.  This is far better than trying to heat a large bowl in the microwave that will leave you with some hot soup and some cold.  Serve it up with a fresh baguette, delicious!  Eb x
