Barley is a grain commonly found in stews due to its firm texture and the natural creaminess it brings to the broth. It's usually paired with beef for a classic beef and barley stew, but swapping out the traditional protein for shrimp offers a lighter, yet filling, option. Sweet potatoes add richness and texture to the dish, and a nice dollop of garlic adds flavor. Fresh shrimp, light green spinach and lemon are added at the last minute so they don't overcook. It's a dish with a bold flavor and lots of body, making it a soup for all seasons. Serve with a salad and crusty bread for a hearty meal.

When purchasing barley for this recipe, we recommend looking for the pearly variety. It cooks in less time, keeps the other ingredients from turning to mush, and has a nice texture that's not too chewy. Score!
