Minestrone

2 tb Vegetable oil
1 c Chopped onion
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
6 Bacon slices
1 c Chopped celery
1 c Chopped carrots
2 c Beef stock
1 c Tomato juice
1 (14oz) can kidney beans, drained
2 ts Basil
1/2 ts Oregano
1 c Barley
2 tb Chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste


In a large saucepan, saute onions and garlic in vegetable oil. In a small frying pan, cook bacon, drain off fat and cut bacon into small pieces. (To save a step, I cut the bacon into bite size chunks first and then cook them in the same pot that the soup is going to be in. Gives it a bit more flavour. Just drain off excess fat.) To the saucepans,add bacon, celery, carrots, beef stock and tomato juice; cook until vegetables are just tender, about 10 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until barley is tender, about 20-30 minutes. Serves 6-8.
