Hearty Amish Soup Recipe

This is a recipe for a hearty, Amish style soup. Packed with good barley, brown rice and fresh vegetables. It is not only healthy, but tastes great! You may halve the recipe, but I like to make a large batch. We eat it a few nights, then freeze the rest for an easy meal another time. So convenient!


Total Time: Around 1 hour, 20 minutes prep included.

Yield: About 24 main dish servings.

Source: Modified from an idea at an Amish grocery store.


  • 1 1/2 gal water (24 cups)
  • 3/4 cup split peas
  • 3/4 cup green lentils
  • 3/4 cup garbanzo beans
  • 3/4 cup pearled barley
  • 3/4 cup brown rice
  • 3/4 cup alphabet pasta
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp basil
  • 2 lb pork sausage
  • 6 cups carrots, sliced
  • 6 cups celery, chopped
  • 6 cups cabbage, chopped
  • 4 28 oz. cans diced tomatoes, do not drain


  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add your measured dry ingredients and bring to a boil.
  2. Add your seasonings and lower the stove to simmer for about 30 minutes.
  3. While the beans and grains simmer in the pot, brown your sausage and set aside.
  4. Chop and slice your veggies.
  5. When your beans and grains are close to tender, add your sausage, veggies and undrained canned tomatoes to the pot. Bring to a boil, simmer for about 30 minutes, or until veggies are tender.
  6. Remove from heat and enjoy! Top with cheese if desired, and add some buttered bread.:)
