Preparation of pickle with pearl barley:

Step 1: Prepare pearl barley for cooking.

To increase the usefulness of cereals for the body, as well as speed up the process of cooking, you must first dunk cereal in warm, but not hot water. So for as long as you can, it is best to soak the cereal in the evening, before cooking, for 8-10 hours. During this time, the barley will swell and the grains will even begin to germinate.

Step 2: Cook the pickle.

When the cereal is sufficiently wet, boil water in a pan, and transfer the pearl barley there. When the water boils again, cook the cereal for 10 minutes, then cover the pan with a lid and gently drain the water. This way we can protect the soup from an ugly color and mucus from barley. Pour water into a saucepan and put it back, after boiling, reduce the fire. While the barley is cooked, we will have time to rinse the potatoes, peel them and cut them into cubes, then add them to the barley and cook for 15 minutes. At this time, you need to chop the onions, grate the carrots on a fine grater and fry them for 3-4 minutes in a pan greased with vegetable oil. Fill the overcooking with a small amount of water, add salt and pepper, mix and pass. Grated pickles on a coarse grater or cut into strips. Add cucumbers to the overheat, mix and warm. If 15 minutes have elapsed after adding the potatoes to the soup, then we add after it an overcooking of onions, carrots and cucumbers, as well as bay leaves. It remains to cook the soup for 5-10 minutes, and then turn it off and give it time to brew.

Step 3: Serve the finished pickle with barley to the table.

The soup is ready, it remains only to decorate it with chopped herbs and sour cream. Serve the pickle must be hot, spilled on portioned plates. Enjoy your meal!
