Barley Soup with Black Chickpeas

اللَّهُمَّ أنَا عَبْدُكَ وابنُ عَبْدِكَ وابنُ أمَتِكَ، نَاصِيتَي بِيَدِكَ، أتَقَلَّبُ في قَبْضَتِكَ، مَاضٍ فيَّ حُكْمُكَ،نَافِذٌ فِيَّ قَضَاؤُكَ، وأُصَدِّقُ بِلِقَائِكَ، وأوْمِنُ بِوَعْدِكَ, أمَرْتَنِي فَعَصَيْتُ، ونَهَيْتَني فَاَبَيْتُ هذَا مَكانُ العَائِذِ بكَ مِنَ النَّارِ لا إلـٰـه إلاَّ أنتَ سُبْحانَكَ ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسي فاغْفِر لي إنَّهُ لا يغْفِرُ الذَُنُوبَ إلا أنْتَ

Barley Soup with Black Chickpeas

Barley is one of the most beneficial foods in this world, & it is the grain Chosen by Allah for His beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam. Keeping this fact in mind, whoever adopts barley will stay healthy Insha’Allah.

Barley soup can have a lot of variety, when you can combine it with various legumes & vegetables. Black chickpeas (Kala Chana) are the best among all legumes / lentils; they are low in saturated Fat, very low in Cholesterol and Sodium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Copper, Folate and Manganese.

I tried Barley’s Saweeq (Sattu) soup with (boiled) black chickpeas & it was a beautiful combination, overflowing with nutrition, & digestibility increased further by adding the blessed olive oil.

Blending all ingredients (in water) before cooking makes the soup consistent & thick.
