  1. Step 1

    Heat a large saucepan over high heat. Add the sausage mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break into lumps, for 5-7 mins or until golden brown. Add the carrot and celery and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the vegetables are tender.
  2. Step 2

    Add the barley to the vegetable mixture in the pan and stir to combine. Add the cherry tomatoes and stir to combine. Add 4 cups (1L) water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 mins or until barley is tender and soup thickens slightly. Season. Serve.
