1/3 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup uncooked lentils
1/2 cup uncooked barley

Combine all ingrediants in a large pot and bring to a simmer for 20 minutes or until the Lentils and Barley are softened.
Add some chicken breast meat or shrimp for a meatier meal. Leftover soup freezes well for even quicker hot meals.
