    This recipe is just the thing for cold days! With turkey, barley, potatoes, carrots and an entire cabbage, this is an incredibly healthy meal. I imagine it can seem bland to someone used to spicy foods, but everyone in my family loved it, even the toddler. It is even better the next day.  -  21 Jul 2008
