8 cups water
14 ounces canned low-sodium chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/3 cup barley

Toast the cumin in a pot over medium heat for 1 minute, stirring. Add olive oil and let it get hot.

Add onion, garlic, oregano, and black pepper. Cook until the onion and garlic become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

Add carrots and tomatoes and cook until they begin to get soft, about 5 minutes.
