Snackshot Of The Day: Soup-E-Jo

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of a bowl of soup-e-jo. Soup-e-Jo is a traditional Persian barley soup. It's a simple soup that just needs barley, chicken, carrots, celery, onion, and various seasonings. You'll find milk in creamier recipes, and it's often seasoned with lemon juice, bay leaves, and cloves. This hearty soup is great for those on a budget.
