Zuppa di Farro (Spelt soup) 500ml – serves two
Farro is an ancient grain featured heavily in Etruscan and Roman cuisine as a useful source of protein. It provides a creamy consistency to the soup in the same way pearl barley works in Scotch broth.
This Tuscan style vegetable broth with cannellini beans, chickpeas, borlotti beans and lentils is a truly fabulous winter soup. With its high protein, fibre and vitamin content it is one of the most dietetically complete vegetarian dishes in the world.
A little tip: Serve with top-notch extra virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese. Season to taste.
