Barley Soup with Duck Confit and Root Vegetables


epicurious
60 mins (prep 60)
10 ingredients
makes 6 first-course servings
This luxurious soup soothes on a wintry day, warming the palate with rich duck confit, sweet root vegetables, and earthy barley. Pearl barley, by definition, has had some of its bran removed, but we found that different brands varied widely. Higher-fiber varieties will have a slightly longer cooking time.
