Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

A nourishing broth, add plenty of color and fiber. Add freshly ground pepper towards the end to perk up this soup. Barley being rich in protein, iron and fiber, helps to lower cholesterol, gives intestinal protection and lowers risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The combination of green peas along with barley i.e. a pulse with a cereal makes this soup a complete source of protein, which is otherwise lacking in a vegetarian diet.
