Excellent soup. My husband lived it. I will definitely make again. I made a couple of changes based on what I had at home. Instead of a leek I used chopped onion. I only had 4 cups of chicken broth so I used 1 cup of vegetable broth. Read More

Used 2c less broth to make it more stew than soup, but that was the only change. I’d consider adding more farro to this because it really does keep a nice bite when cooked! Read More
