This post originally appeared here almost three years ago and it has become one of our family’s all-time favorites! Seriously, my kids LOVE this soup and ask for it. I love that because it is so good for you too with all the vegetables and whole grains. Paired with a garden salad or crusty bread makes it an even more delicious complete meal. I’ve said it before, I love my slowcooker and I like to think of my slowcooker like my personal kitchen assistant!

This Simple Slowcooker Ground Turkey, Vegetable and Barley Soup is so simple to put together too. I originally found this recipe in slowcooker book of mine but modified several of the ingredients to make it more to my family’s liking.

We like to serve our soup with oyster crackers or fresh baguette bread from the bakery. We like it so much that I often make it when we have company coming. It takes me less than 15 minutes to put it all together in the slowcooker and in just a few hours dinner is ready. Perfect for the end of a busy day! I hope you’ll give it a try too.

    Made this tonight!! So tasty and easy to put together! I almost fainted when the neighbor texted me to say that the power was out on her street due to high winds. I thought “my crock pot better still be on!!” And it was;-)
