2 TBSP cooking oil
1 onion, diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
8 cups water
4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled and cut in 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup pearl barley, rinsed
1 bay leaf
4 whole baby dill pickles, diced
1/2 cup pickle brine
salt & pepper
1/4 cup fresh dill


1. Heat the oil in a dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the onion, carrot, 1 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or until veggies are soft.

2. Pour in the water and bring to a boil.

3. Stir in the barley and bay leaf. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered, about 20 minutes.
