    Title: T'chicha (Barley & Tomato Soup)
    Categories: Vegetables, Grains, Herbs
    Yield: 5 servings

    3 tb Olive oil; more to serve
    1 lg Yellow onion, in 1/4" dice
    1 1/4 c Pearl barley
    1/2 (14 oz) can crushed
    - tomatoes
    2 md Tomatoes; cored, diced in
    - 1/2" pieces
    2 cl Garlic; grated
    2 1/2 ts Sweet paprika
    1 1/2 ts Fine sea salt; more to
    - taste
    5 c Vegetable stock or water
    1 ts Dried thyme
    Fresh thyme; garnish (opt)

    Add the olive oil to a large pot over medium-low.
    Add the onion, cover the pan, and cook stirring
    occasionally, until the onion is soft and translucent,
    about 7 minutes.

    Add the pearl barley, canned tomatoes, garlic, sweet
    paprika, salt and stock. Bring to a boil over high.
    Reduce the heat to low, cover with a lid and leave to
    simmer for 45 minutes or until the barley is fully
    cooked. At this stage of the cooking process, you might
    need to add more water progressively to the pot to
    achieve a soup consistency.

    Stir in the dried thyme, taste, and adjust the seasoning
    with salt if necessary. Serve immediately with a
    generous drizzle of olive oil and a couple of fresh
    thyme sprigs, if desired.
