Mushroom Farro Soup from The Way the Cookie Crumbles

Once again I'm touting the deliciousness of Farro, a type of emmer wheat from Italy that's a delicious addition to soups, stews, and casseroles. I love everything about this Mushroom Farro Soup from The Way the Cookie Crumbles, with both dried and fresh mushrooms, onions, carrots, garlic, stock, and a tiny bit of tomato paste. You can skip the small amount of sherry Bridget uses to add more flavor, but don't skip the little bit of sherry vinegar that's stirred in at the end.  (This recipe would be vegan if you use vegetable stock. Farro is not gluten-free, but brown rice would make a good substitute in this recipe.) ...more

Farro Risotto with Cannellini and Basil from FamilyStyle Food

One thing that's fun about eating less meat is the way it helps you discover delicious new foods that you might otherwise have missed.

When I saw this recipe for Farro Risotto with Cannellini and Basil on FamilyStyle Food, it sounded like a perfect Meatless Monday dish, and if you haven't had farro, I'm betting you'll like it. (Farro is not gluten-free but most recipes using it can be made with brown rice for a gluten-free version.) ...more
