  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup uncooked farro
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1/3 whole leek
  • 1/2 stalk celery
  • 1/2 whole carrot
  • 1/8 whole white onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2/3 cup cannellini beans


  • Bring chicken broth to a boil, in a medium pot. Add farro to boiling water, cook, covered for 20-30 minutes, or until farro is chewy and tender. 
  • While farro is cooking, slice leek thinly, then rinse well. Slice celery, carrot, and onion into evenly sliced pieces. Cook for 6-8 minutes, then add Italian seasoning and beans, cook for another 3-5 minutes or until leeks and beans are soft and warm. 
  • Layer in farro, then beans and vegetables into a bowl. Eat immediately.



  • Swap the cannellini beans for other white beans
  • Swap the leeks for shallots or onions if you don't have leeks available (shallots will be closest to leek flavor)
  • If you don't have farro, use bulger, brown rice, or wheat berries instead.
