Vegetable Barley Soup

2 carrots
2 onions
2 potatoes
50 gm of red pumpkin
50 gm white pumpkin
2 tomatoes
some cabbage leaves
6 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
1/2 cup barley pearls
6 cups vegetable stock/water. You can make the stock with soup cubes.

Chop, clean and cut all the vegetables into bite sized chunks.
Add 6 cups of stock/water and add the barley. Add salt and pepper. Boil for 30-35 minutes.
If you like the soup a bit chunky, take a few tablespoons out and blend it. Add it back to the soup.
