Tuscan Farro Soup recipe

servings: 6

total time: 1 hour 45 minutes

recipe by: 


  • 1 cup dried great northern beans, rinsed
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 pound roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked farro, rinsed
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 ounces baby spinach, chopped
  • 1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Add the beans and 6 cups of water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Place a lid on the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer beans over medium-low heat until just tender, about 1 hour.

  2. Drain the beans and set aside.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat.

  4. Add the celery, carrot, garlic, and onion and cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

  5. Stir in the tomatoes, farro, 7 cups of water, 2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper then bring to a boil.

  6. Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low then simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until farro is cooked (tender, but a little chewy), about 35 minutes.

  7. Stir in the spinach, Parmesan, and cooked beans.

  8. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
