Updated July 14, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1
    lb. lean ground turkey or ground beef
  • 3/4
    cup fresh baby carrots, cut in half lengthwise
  • 1/2
    cup chopped onion
  • 1/2
    cup sliced celery
  • 1
    garlic clove, minced
  • 1
    (1.25-oz.) pkg. 40% less-sodium taco seasoning mix
  • 3 1/2
    cups water
  • 1
    (28-oz.) can Italian-style plum tomatoes, undrained, cut up
  • 3/4
    cup uncooked quick-cooking barley
  • 1/2
    teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

Steps

  • 1
    Spray Dutch oven with nonstick cooking spray. Add ground turkey, carrots, onion, celery, garlic and 1 tablespoon of the taco seasoning mix; cook over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.
  • 2
    Stir in water, tomatoes and remaining taco seasoning mix. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3
    Add barley; simmer an additional 15 minutes or until barley is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in oregano.

  • Barley adds nice texture to soup and soaks up the flavors of the other ingredients. Using the quick-cooking version shortens cooking time by more than half an hour.
